Men rob teen of cigarettes, lighter


Two men, one with a gun, attacked and robbed a 15-year-old Millersville boy of a pack of cigarettes and a lighter Monday as he walked behind the Metro Food Market in the 600 block of Old Mill Road.

The boy told police when two men 18 to 20 years old approached him shortly after 9 p.m. behind the store. One grabbed him in a choke hold, and the other placed a gun to his head and demanded money, police said. The boy said he had no money, so the men emptied his pockets, stealing a pack of cigarettes and a lighter, police said.
