MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - Milwaukee police hold 2 teenagers who weren't very good at their chosen criminal pursuit.
They tried to rob a 47-year-old man as he came outside a liquor store. One of the 15-year-old suspects showed the man a gun and apparently demanded some money. The would-be victim used his just-bought liquor bottle to knock the gun out of the kid's hand and the two failed robbers ran away.
A witness watched the boys put their masks on before the attempted robbery, so police were able to track down one suspect quickly. Not too much later they picked up the other one.
