FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) - Fort Dodge police say boys 12 and 13 are accused of using an airsoft pistol to rob a man of his cellphone.

The Messenger reports (https://bit.ly/2cptdA0 ) that officers were sent to the scene in central Fort Dodge around 2:05 a.m. Sunday. Christopher Monley reported that he was walking home when the two boys accosted him and demanded he give them his phone. Monley says he refused but then changed his mind when one pointed at him what he thought was a handgun. They rode away on their bicycles.

Police say the boys later were found and arrested a few blocks away. One of them had the airsoft pistol and the other was carrying the man’s cellphone. The boys were charged with robbery and referred to juvenile authorities.
