Lockport police have released the names of three teenagers they say broke into a home at 287 Lock Street around 11 p.m. Saturday night.

The three teens, 19-year-old Maria Parete of Hawley Street, 16-year-old Lewis Williams of Garden Street and 16-year-old Kyliek Bembo of Lock Street, were charged with first-degree robbery for holding the homeowners at gunpoint — with an air pistol — while they robbed the home of electronics and other property. Parete was also charged with seventh-degree possession of a controlled substance for having prescription tablets that were not prescribed to her.

Lockport Police, the Niagara County Sheriff's Office and New York State Police responded to what was reported as a hostage situation around 11 p.m. All three suspects were in police custody around 1:30 a.m. but police were still looking for one or more potential suspects at that time.

Further charges are pending as the investigation continues.

A story posted early this morning incorrectly stated that the three suspects in custody were all male.

  1. I have seen so many posts blaming the parents i just so happened to be in court the day they all had to appear before the judge. I honestly could see the hurt and concern on those parents face i could just tell they were not raised to behave this way. To the parents stay strong and hold your head up high your kids made a stupid mistake but please dont blame yourselves
