A 17-year-old is behind bars in Harrison County charged with robbery.

The Biloxi Police Department said Zawauntae Moore took $40 from a victim, after striking her several times in the head with a stick.

Under state law, individuals who have reached their 17th birthday are charged as adults if the crime they commit would be a felony if committed by an adult.

Moore is being held at the Harrison County Adult Detention Center on a $10,000 bond.
