Boy helps thwart robbery

A 12-year-old New York boy just getting into the shower heard a crash and his grandmother scream, so he jumped naked out of a second-floor window and called 911, helping police foil an armed robbery, police said.

The boy’s 21-year-old brother jumped out of another window in the Bronx home Friday and ran to a nearby restaurant for help.

Police responding to the call shot and wounded two armed suspects after they pointed their guns at the officers and refused to drop them, said NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne. Both of the shot suspects were in stable condition at a hospital, according to police. None of the officers or the occupants of the home was injured, police said. A third suspect surrendered.
