Two teenagers were robbed at gunpoint last weekend in North York, police said.

Northern York County Regional Police said the boys, ages 14 and 15, were walking along East Sixth Avenue about 10:30 p.m. Saturday, April 8, when they were approached by two males, one riding a green mountain bike.


One of the males brandished a handgun and demanded the teens empty their pockets, police said.

The robbers then fled with a small amount of cash, two phone chargers and a cellphone, according to police, who found the phone chargers ditched in a nearby alley.

Neither teen was hurt, police said.

Both robbers wore black hooded sweatshirts; one wore blue jeans and was about 6-foot-2, while the other had on gray jeans and was about 5-foot-6, police said.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call police at 717-292-3647, or call 911. Tips also can  be left on the department's "crimetip" reporting section of its website, nycrpd.org.
