NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police Sunday night were seeking three suspects accused of robbing a 12-year-old boy at gunpoint in Brooklyn.

Around 8:30 p.m. this past Friday, the suspects walked up to the boy at 331 E. 18th St. in the Flatbush-Ditmas Park section of Brooklyn. One of the suspects put a gun to the boy’s back and demanded money, police said.

The boy was with his mother, who was pushing his 4-year-old sister in a stroller, police said.

The boy’s mother gave the suspects and undetermined amount of money, and the suspects ran off, police said.

The suspects were described as black males in their 20s, one of whom had a pony tail. Police have released sketches of two of the suspects.
