It's alleged they tried to hijack a man while he was parked on Wick Street in Verulam on Friday night. 

The police's Jay Naicker says the man became suspicious of the boys and tried to leave - but they blocked his path. 

"They demanded his vehicle at gunpoint and attempted to force the doors open. He managed to drive out of the parking lot at a high speed whilst suspects fled the scene on foot."
