Atlanta Police are searching for a crew of robbers who ambushed a 14-year-old with a gun and forced him to hand over his cell phone, or they would shoot him. 

The ordeal happened last Monday along Lenox Road NE in the Woodland Hills neighborhood. 

Police said shortly before 11 p.m., the 14-year-old was walking home when two men started to follow him; police said one of them showed him his revolver in his pocket, and motioned for him to go into the alley. 

The gunman grabbed the cell phone from the boy's pocket, asked him to type his password and then ordered him to hand it back or he would shoot him. 

Police described the suspects as 16 to 18 years old. The gunman had a slim build, rotted teeth, was 5'8" to 5'10" with a blue hoodie and blue jeans.
