Police say a group of four teens who were outside of a Tuxedo community centre that evening around 7:45 p.m. were approached by two men demanding their property.
During this time, one of the men pointed to his waistband, showing the teens a gun that was tucked inside. The other man pulled out a can of what the teens believed to be pepper spray. The suspects stole the teen's property and fled on foot.
