Beulah Street 6400 On June 3rd, at about 5:00 p.m., two Franconia area boys, aged 14 and 15, were in the one boy's back yard, shooting at cans with a pellet gun.  Two other boys rode up on bicycles, grabbed the pellet gun and tried to take it.  A struggle ensued and one of the boys on a bicycle pulled a knife and demanded the pellet gun.  One victim let go of the pellet gun and the suspects rode away.  The victims told an adult at the home, who located the suspects nearby and retrieved the pellet gun.  Police responded and took the suspects, two Franconia area boys, aged 11 and 14 into custody.  The boys were charged with two counts of robbery each and held at the juvenile detention center.
