Guam - A 17-year-old male minor was confined at the Department of Youth Affairs accused of trying to rob a man at the Navy Federal Credit Union ATM machine at the Century Plaza in Tamuning.  Police say the man was approached by an individual who was carrying a black gun. 

The gun jammed when the suspect pulled the trigger and the victim was able to disarm the suspect who fled the scene in a sedan.  Tumon-Tamuning Precinct Officer Morgan Reyes noticed the vehicle near the JFK hill and brought the suspect into custody. 

The male minor has been charged with robbery, aggravated assault and possession and use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony.
