Authorities say a 12-year-old held up a man at gunpoint in New Jersey's capital city.

Trenton police say the boy pulled out a handgun and told the 27-year-old to "give it up" on Sunday afternoon.

Police told The Times of Trenton the man surrendered a cellphone and $13 cash.

Police filed juvenile petitions against the child for armed robbery and weapons offenses. His name was not released because of his age.
