Boys, 7 and 11, Attempt Carjack Robbery With Gun


/ December 10, 2012

Some shocking news has been reported from Portland, Oregon.

Two boys, ages 7 and 11, stand accused of trying to carjack a woman at gunpoint, police said in a statement.

The boys tried to carjack a 22-year-old woman who was in her family’s truck waiting for her parents in a church parking lot, Portland police said in a statement. The woman, Ami Garrett, said the two boys approached her car and one of the boys told the other “show her your piece.” However, she refused and drove away from the scene. She later told police they also demanded cash and her phone.

“The woman again refused to give them anything and she drove away, calling 911. As she pulled away, she saw the 11-year-old pull the gun from his pocket,” police said.

Police arrived shortly after and took the two boys into temporary custody after a loaded .22 caliber handgun from the older boy’s pockets. The crime was reported to have taken place in a church parking lot.

The young boys were released to their parents because of the their age. Charges are still pending.
