One suspect appeared to be about 13 years old and pointed a gun at them. The other male appeared to be about 17 years old and held his hand at his waistband as if he had a gun. They demanded money and cell phones. The suspects threatened to kill them if they did not give them their phones. The suspects took the phones and left in their vehicle. The victims followed the suspects for a short time but decided not to continue because they were speeding and running red lights. The victims gave officers a plate number of the suspect vehicle which came back as stolen at gunpoint in Minneapolis. The victims were able to ping their phones and provided officers with location information as well as information from Apple because changes were being made to the accounts. Due to this information, the victims were able to locate Facebook pages belonging to the suspects and provided this information to the police. Roseville Detectives followed up and were able to obtain the identity of the suspects involved and learned that the suspects are possibly linked to several other (similar) crimes in multiple jurisdictions.
