Robbery

A crime in which one takes the property of another by force or threat of force. Robbery generally requires the victim to be put in a state of fear when the crime occurs. The element of force distinguishes robbery from theft. Robbery is considered a serious crime; under Islamic law, for example, highway robbery historically has been punishable by death or amputation of limbs.
