3 teens arrested in skateboard robbery in MB

Three teenage boys pulled up to two 12-year-olds in Manhattan Beach and robbed them at gunpoint of their skateboards, police said Tuesday.

The teens demanded the boys' skateboards when they approached them at 8 p.m. Monday in a black sport utility vehicle at Mathews and Peck avenues in Manhattan Beach, police said.

An occupant seated behind the driver pointed a handgun at the boys through a passenger window and demanded the skateboards.

One of the victims handed over his $45 skateboard and the SUV sped away.

A police officer heard a description of the vehicle, a black SUV with tinted windows, and realized he had run a check earlier on a similar vehicle, Manhattan Beach police Sgt. Steve Tobias said.

Manhattan Beach police went to that vehicle's address in El Segundo and contacted a 47-year-old man and his 16- and 15-year-old sons. The victims identified the vehicle in the driveway and the teens as responsible for the crime.

The stolen skateboard was found in the vehicle. An Airsoft replica semiautomatic handgun was found in the house.
