Two teenage boys were arrested after reportedly shooting at a group of girls with pellet guns and then stealing a bicycle from a younger boy on Thursday, police said.

A 10-year-old boy reported having his bicycle stolen at gunpoint by two teens at about 2:45 p.m. Thursday in the 1500 block of Northeast Parkway, Lt. Dan East said. That’s just northeast of 13th and Oliver.

The suspects, ages 13 and 14, pointed handguns at him and demanded his bike, the boy said. Officers found the suspects about an hour later and recovered the bike, East said.

As officers were working on that case, they learned that two suspects had fired handgun-shaped BB guns at three girls less than an hour before the young boy’s bike was stolen, East said.

The girls, ages 12, 13 and 13, were fired upon at about 2 p.m. in the 5000 block of East 14th Street. That’s less than a block from where the boy’s bicycle was stolen.

The 12-year-old girl was hit in the arm by a pellet, which lodged beneath the skin, East said.
