Police: youths pointed airsoft air guns at man

Two 15-year-old boys from Sheboygan were arrested Wednesday night after a man said they pointed handguns at him on Sheboygan’s south side.

According to a Sheboygan Police Department press release, the man was in his car near King Park at the east end of Broadway Avenue and South Seventh Street at 8:20 p.m. when four teens approached the vehicle. Two of the youths pulled realistic-looking handguns from their pockets and pointed them at the man, who got out of his car and ran away, the press release said.

A Sheboygan police officer located the teens several blocks away and arrested them at gunpoint. Two Airsoft handguns, which are similar to a real Sig Sauer handgun, were located in a nearby trashcan.

Two of the teens were referred to juvenile authorities for charges of disorderly conduct and released to their parents. Two other teens, ages 15 and 16, were released and will not face charges.
