Two women were held up at gunpoint by teen robbers Thursday at a bus shelter on 92nd Street.

According to a Wauwatosa Police Department report:

The nurses from Luther Manor were having a cigarette at 9:22 p.m. when two boys approached. At first they thought they were asking for cigarettes, then they realized they were demanding money.

One of the boys pointed a handgun at a woman's chest from less than two feet away. She said she heard a sound consistent with chambering a round.

The nurses handed over cell phones, cigarettes and wallets. Then the boys ran across 92nd Street.

Milwaukee police reported a similar robbery in their city earlier in the evening.
