WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police are investigating after they say two teens used a gun to rob a construction crew when the group of workers went to get food from a Wilmington restaurant near their work site.
Wilmington Police say it happened just after 1 a.m. at the Checkers restaurant in the 1900 block of Oleander Drive near the Food Lion there, where officers say the construction crew of six was working on a job. Police say the crew told them they were eating their food when two teens approached them with a handgun.
When officers responded to an area near the Food Lion, they say they the crew told them the teens were ages 14 to 15, both wearing all black clothing at the time of the robbery. Police say the workers told them the duo took off running towards the railroad tracks nearby afterwards.
There’s no word on what the two teens got away with when they robbed the crew.
