WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police are investigating after they say three masked men had a gun when the trio robbed a 14-year-old boy in Wilmington Saturday afternoon.
They say it happened around 2:45 p.m. in the 1100 block of Anne Street. Police say the boy told officers he was approached by three men in black hoodies with black bandannas covering their faces.
That’s when they say one of the men lifted up his shirt, showing the boy he had a gun. The trio then took off with the boy’s iPhone.
Police say the boy couldn’t call in the crime until almost a half-hour later, since he had no phone.
