Three teens allegedly tried to rob an elderly woman in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania on Tuesday.
“She said one of the three pointed a small, silver pistol at her chest while the other demanded she give up her money,” McKees Rocks Police Chief Robert Cifrulak told CBS Pittsburgh (video below).
“She explained she was a former educator and she just stared them down, sort of drew a line in the sand. And their response was to start laughing at her and walk away, which allowed her to finish her call to 9-1-1.”
Later, police arrested the three teen suspects a short distance away. During the arrest, police found that the gun was not real.
“It was a toy, but as you can see, it looks very realistic. It has the stamping of a real gun. It looks like the real deal, and it was interesting to note that it’s been modified, the barrel. All toys would have a full orange plug that even extends outward so it can be readily identified as a toy. This one was modified to hide that, conceal that and look more realistic," said Chief Cifrulak.
