Man robbed by teens armed with replica gun

ROCHESTER, Minn. – Police say a 12-year-old and 13-year-old robbed a 22-year-old man at gunpoint on Friday night.

The man was walking on 18th Ave. NW when the two juveniles approached him and pointed what looked like a gun in his face, demanding money.

The victim only had his iPhone, so he gave them that. The suspects then reportedly ran off in the other direction and the victim, who believes he knows the suspects, was able to flag down an officer.

A short time later, police found the juveniles who had the iPhone on them. Officers also recovered the replica gun. They were taken to the Juvenile Detention Center and could face charges of first-degree aggravated robbery and second-degree assault.
