It can be confusing for people to know the difference between robbery and larceny in the beginning. Robbery is known to be a type of felony theft. This means that you have taken the property of another person through means that are not considered to be legal. For example, you have tried to get the property of the person by force. This is known to be larceny.

When you say robbery, this is when you try to get money or essential items from another person. Take note that robbery is a bit hard to define because it may vary a bit from one place to another. Get to know its proper definition before you use it.
