Police in Bed-Stuy arrested two teens Tuesday evening, one carrying a gun and the other who had a hidden blade in his pocket.
According to a police report, police in an unmarked patrol car watched a 16-year-old allegedly hide a knife in his back pocket while walking near the intersection of Gates Avenue and Marcy Avenue on Aug. 27 just before 8 p.m. When two of the police stepped out of their car to approach him, they saw another teenager standing with him adjust something in his waistband.
When police got closer, the second suspect turned and ran, throwing the gun from his wasitband into a playground near the corner of Marcy Avenue and Monroe Street.
Police arrested the second suspect, 17 years old, and found a 9mm semi-automatic handgun (pictured above) which they say he threw while running from the police.
Both were arrested at the scene and charged with criminal possession of a weapon.
