TRUMBULL -

Police in Trumbull and Fairfield teamed up to catch a pair of Bridgeport teens wanted for two armed robbery attempts.

They say 19-year-old Geraldo Coelho and a 17-year-old tried to hold up a 69-year-old man at a park in Trumbull Thursday afternoon.

They say the two gave up when the victim fought back, and instead went to Fairfield where they tried to rob someone else.

The duo was caught a short time later.

News 12 is told a BB gun was found in their car.
