Robbery vs. Theft
Robbery is considered taking an item from a person via force or the threat of force. An individual cannot commit robbery without taking something from a person in a violent manner.
Violence can be considered any of the following actions:
- Snatching property from a person
- Threatening or coercing a victim
- Using physical force such as kicking or hitting
- Placing the victim in fear of serious injury
If you threaten someone, said threat doesn't have to be explicitly stated. Flashing a gun or knife can be considered a violent threat.
Theft is defined as taking someone's property without said owner's consent and with the intention of never returning said property to the rightful owner. For one to commit theft, they must take tangible property away from a person with the intent to permanently deprive them of said property.
There are various degrees of robbery, but all include severe legal consequences such as jail time and extortionate fines, as well as a mark on your permanent record.
