Video shows the two teens–ages 13 and 14–eying the girl’s wallet as she paid for her items in a Philadelphia corner store around 8:30 a.m Friday morning. They waited outside of the store for the child to exit through the door. As soon as she stepped out, the boys held her up and ran off with her wallet. It had $13 in cash. There are no reports of the boys being armed.
Cops released footage of the robbery to news outlets Friday night and the response was instant.
Both Mothers of the suspects came to the police station and turned their Child in.
Both boys were arrested and charged with robbery and related offenses, said Officer Christine O’Brien, a police spokeswoman. The boys were then released to their parents and allowed to go home.
