Two male juveniles were walking along the beach when they were approached by another male who also appeared to be in his teens. The third male told the other two he had a gun while keeping one hand concealed under his shirt. He then demanded a cellphone, which was refused. The culprit then left the location on foot. No one was harmed and no personal belongings were taken in the incident. No gun was brandished by the culprit or seen by the victims.
The culprit is described as being a young dark-skinned male. He was wearing a dark-coloured shirt and bright-coloured shorts.
