Three 13-year-old boys reportedly stole condoms and candy from a Walgreens store in Madison, Wisconsin.
Cops says that the boys, whose names were withheld due to their ages, were confronted by a Walgreens manager outside the store, after he saw them commit their alleged thefts, reports TheSmokingGun.com.
The manager told police: "At least two, and maybe all three, of the boys brandished knives.”
One of the teens threw a stolen $15 package of condoms at the manager, while another boy yelled: “Don't you call the f*cking police!”
The boys were caught by police after boarding a bus to make their getaway on Friday night.
Police found three steak knives on the young suspects. One boy said he carried a knife for protection, while another boy claimed to have been “cutting food earlier and had forgotten he had left the blade in his pocket.”
Each boy was booked into Madison’s Juvenile Reception Center on charges of armed robbery, retail theft, and carrying a concealed weapon.
