Rocky Mount family robbed at gunpoint

Posted December 2, 2011

— Police said Friday that they believe two teenage boys robbed a Rocky Mount family at gunpoint Thursday.

The father and two children were at Battle Park around 4:20 p.m. when the teens showed guns, demanded money and fled on bicycles.

The boys, ages 14 and 15, were later arrested and charged on a juvenile petition with robbery with a dangerous weapon, police said.

Because of their ages, their names were not released.
