Police say two Detroit-area youngsters used a toy gun to rob five of their schoolmates of candy and chips, the Associated Press reports. The five victims were walking home earlier this week from Lincoln Elementary in Warren, north of Detroit, when one of the boys pulled the plastic gun on them, police said. The suspects, ages 10 and 8, have been identified and police said they were making arrangements to have them brought in to be questioned, according to The Detroit News.
“I can honestly say I cannot ever remember anything like this happening with such young suspects,” Warren Detective Lt. Dan Beck told The Macomb Daily in Mount Clemens reported. “At least one of the victims told our officers he believed the gun was real.”
