ERIE, Pa. - Erie police are looking for a boy believed to be no more than 10 years old who used a BB gun to hold up two women, shooting them in the backside and jaw when they refused to give up their money.

Erie Police Lt. Kirk Werner says the younger boy, who the victims said looked to be between 8 and 10 years old, was accompanied during Wednesday's robbery by an older teenager, estimated to be about 17.

Werner says it was the younger boy who shot the girls with the BB gun. He says one of the victims has a BB pellet lodged in her jaw.

As of Thursday, no arrests had been made.
