Davenport police took two juveniles into custody Tuesday evening after the two boys allegedly flashed guns, which turned out to be BB guns, at another person who called police.

Davenport police said Wednesday that one of the juveniles, who is 16, is charged with harassment-second-degree, assault, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of controlled substance-marijuana first-offense. He was released to a parent or guardian.

Police received the call about the incident at 6:22 p.m. Tuesday and stopped the Dodge Charger in which the boys were riding in the 1500 block of West Locust Street.
