NEW ORLEANS – The NOPD has arrested six juveniles who stole a man’s bicycle and cellphone before pointing what turned out to be a toy gun at him as they fled.
The armed robbery occurred around 6:45 p.m. on March 19 in the 400 block of Toulouse Street, according to initial reports by the NOPD.
The six boys surrounded the 31-year-old man and robbed him before pointing what the victim thought was a real gun at him.
Officers were able to round up the six juveniles a short time later and arrest them without further incident.
The officers were able to determine that the weapon the boys used in the robbery was, in fact, a toy.
