Two teenagers say they were robbed at gunpoint Thursday night near Lincoln Northeast High School.
Officer Luke Bonkiewicz said they went to North 61st Street and Madison Avenue shortly after 7:30 p.m., where they talked to two teen boys, a 16- and 15-year-old.
They told police they had gone there to sell vape pens to some people they’d met on Snapchat. But when the buyers, two teenagers, got there, one pointed a black handgun at them while the other punched them multiple times.
Bonkiewicz said the thieves took the boys' wallets, AirPods, two vape pens and other property totaling about $235.
