CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

We've learned two young teens have been arrested for robbing children of their bike, holding them up at gunpoint.

The victims, two 10-year-olds and a 7-year old playing off the 4400 block of State Road in Cleveland. Second district investigators believe the guns were real-looking pellet guns, but would a second grader know that?

Those victims said they were playing when one robber put a gun to one child's head. The other put a gun to another child's side.

One boy told 19 Action News, he said, "I got a gun, get off the bike."

"It was pretty scary," said another child.

A neighbor saw it and called police. They arrested the robbers, and recovered the bike, but not the guns. Police have not identified the suspects, but they are believed to be 15 and 13 years old.

One mother told us, "Can't even be safe at the park without having teenagers or little punks try to put a gun to a 10-year-old's head."
