        COVINGTON — Three teen-agers were arrested after a robbery in MainStrasse Village, and police say they may be responsible for a rash of strong-arm robberies in the area.

        The teens, two 17-year-olds and one 18-year-old, all from Covington, held a man and woman at knifepoint and gunpoint at 411 W. 6th St. a little after 1 a.m. Tuesday, police said.

        Joey Fay, 22, of Villa Hills, and Stephanie Frederick, 21, of Newport, were walking to their car when the incident occurred, said Lt. Col. Jim Liles, spokesman for the Covington police.

        Lt. Col. Liles said one of the youths threatened to kill the couple, stole $10 or $15, fired a shot into the air and fled.

        Police picked up the teen-agers at Seventh and Greenup streets. Two .25-caliber semiautomatic shell casings were on the ground.

        The two juveniles were taken to the Campbell Regional Juvenile Detention Center in Newport. Names were withheld due to their age.

        The 18-year-old, Nicholas Brink, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to a charge of first-degree robbery. He is being held in the Kenton County jail in lieu of $5,000 bail. His next court date is July 19.
