AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Police in Akron are investigating a teenage boy’s claims that two high school classmates pistol-whipped him during a robbery this week and then fired the weapon at him as he fled.

Cleveland.com reports (https://bit.ly/2ij6hsH ) the incident occurred just after 10:30 p.m. Tuesday near the Kenmore Branch Library, where the 15-year-old victim arranged to sell a hat.

Police say two of the victim’s schoolmates at Kenmore High School, ages 14 and 15, started attacking him when he arrived to the location.

The 14-year-old reportedly pointed a gun at the victim and then pistol-whipped him. As the victim ran, police say the 14-year-old fired one or two shots at him.

Juvenile assault and robbery charges are being pursued against both boys. Police haven’t apprehended either suspect yet.

The victim wasn’t seriously injured.
