Two boys were arrested in Israel Wednesday after trying to rob a bank with fake M-16 rifles.

Israeli police said the youths, ages 12 and 13, entered a branch of Bank Leumi in the city of Rishon Lezion, where they approached a teller and displayed what looked like weapons, demanding money with the declaration, “This is a robbery. Hand over the money.”

According to Israeli media reports, the startled teller ran to a back room to call for help. Other employees followed her in search of a safe place and in the ensuing confusion, the kids bolted the premises without receiving any money.

The Israeli website NRG reported that they were wearing their hoodies pulled over their hair, but their faces were uncovered and therefore readily recognizable on a security camera recording.

Police were able to track down the boys to their homes where they were arrested. Police told NRG that during their interrogation, one of the boys said they had just wanted to “play a joke.”
