A 14-year-old boy was robbed by two men of his $5 and shoes after getting off a school bus Tuesday afternoon in New Orleans East, according to the New Orleans Police Department.

When the boy got off the bus near the intersection of Dwyer Road and Westlake Drive around 4:30 p.m., a man exited a black SUV, knocked the boy to the ground and demanded his $5 in cash. A second suspect got out of the vehicle, took out a gun and demanded the boy's shoes.

The suspects fled, and the boy was treated and released from an area hospital.
