The victims, a 16 year old Warwick boy and a 17 year old Warwick boy stated that around 10:30pm on Monday, they were standing on Glebe Road across from Victor Scott Primary School when six young men on three auxiliary cycles stopped beside them. One of the men told the victims they were going to take a green Suzuki RC 50, which belonged to the 16 year old and was parked on the side of the road.
