Police: 12-year-old boys pull gun on couple in New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Two 12-year-old boys have been arrested after police say one of them pulled a gun on a man and woman in the Garden District of New Orleans.

According to a report from New Orleans police, the boys approached the man and woman around 8:45 p.m. Saturday and asked them for a dollar. When the victims refused, one of the boys produced a gun and forced the man to get on his knees.

Police say the man complied and the boys ran off.

The boys were both apprehended shortly thereafter. Further information hasn't been released.
