Delaware Teens Use Paintball Gun in Robbery Attempt

Four teenagers were arrested in Wilmington after police they say three of them tried to use a paintball gun to rob several people.

Wilmington police said Friday that three victims reported that three teens had tried to rob them at gunpoint on Wednesday evening. The teens fled after failing to rob them.

Police say soon after, they found four teenagers matching the victims' description of them and arrested them on charges of first-degree robbery. Among them were three boys, ages 14, 15, and 16, and a 15-year-old girl.

Police say the teens had a paintball gun that looks like a regular handgun.

The teens are being held in lieu of $33,000 cash bail.
