SAN LEANDRO, Calif. (AP) — Police in San Leandro are looking for robbers who stole a puppy at gunpoint from a 14-year-old boy.

The San Francisco Chronicle says it happened Monday night as the boy walked a 3-month-old German shepherd named Maya.

Police say two men rolled up in a car. The passenger got out and tried to snatch the dog but the boy resisted. The driver then got out with a gun.

The men took nothing but the dog and fled.
