The Inquirer reports that Young allegedly robbed the store with the help of his brother, who manages the store, and a getaway driver.

ESPN ranks Young as the 170th recruit in the Class of 2018.
He is a standout running back and safety at Imhotep, but was recruited by Penn State as a safety.
People give up on some things way too easily, especially friends. Isheem is just a kid… People need to be cheering for him, showing him love, and trying to help him rather than shaming him. It’s pretty sick how people are treating a young kid with a situation like Sheem’s

As a running back, Young, who is 6 feet 3, 195 pounds, has rushed for 783 yards and 17 touchdowns this year.
However, there are reports that Young is no longer part of the recruiting class following his arrest.
