Two boys rob another boy at gunpoint in Jersey City and try to rob a man

Two Jersey City boys robbed another boy at gunpoint for a video game, then try to rob a grown man but were foiled.

From the article:
[The first young victim] told police one boy grabbed him from behind and held a knife to his throat while the other stood in front of him pointing a silver handgun at his stomach, reports said. The boy with the gun said “Give me all you have” and they ran off with the victim’s Battle Field 3 PlayStation Game, reports said.
The young victim described both robbers as being about 12-years-old and said the boy with the gun was wearing a green jacket, reports said.
At 5:50 p.m. Monday a 58-year-old man was near his home at Mercer Loop and Ristaino Drive when a thrown bottle shattered beside him and he turned to see two 12 to 15-year-old boys, reports said.
One boy said “Give me everything you have,” and the man began backing toward his home when he saw the other boy had a metal rod in one hand, a bottle in the other, and was motioning toward his waistline as though he had a hidden weapon too, reports said.
The victim said “I don’t have anything on me now, but I have something in my house for you,” reports said, adding that he quickly entered his home and locked the door. The boys waited in front of the residence for about five minutes and left only after the victim’s daughter called police, reports said.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
