SIOUX FALL, S.D. (KELO AM) - Police say two 15-year-old Fargo boys were arrested yesterday in Sioux Falls after stealing a 12-year-old girl’s cellphone at gun point.
Officer Sam Clemens says the girl was home on East 18th Street when she answered a knock on the door. She told police one of the boys pointed a handgun at her and demanded her cell phone. Clemens says the girl's phone was on a table near the door and one of the suspects grabbed it and they ran away.
Clemens says the suspects were found near 26th and Bahnson and a foot chase started. One of the boys started to raise the gun at officers but lowered his weapon. Both suspects were eventually apprehended.
Clemens says the boys stole a car in Fargo and are suspects in an armed robbery attempt and possibly burglaries in Sioux Falls.
They’re in the Juvenile Detention Center.
