Robbery is the taking of the property of another by force or by threat with the intent to permanently deprive the person of that property.
Aggravated robbery occurs when circumstances make the act more serious than simple robbery. A variety of factors such as using a deadly weapon and inflicting serious bodily harm can turn a simple robbery into an aggravated robbery.
