"I think the summer time is here and the kids are out," added parent Mark Rust. "It's a shame that's the case."
The two surrendered to police, each charged with one count of armed robbery.
Mark Rust frequents the Circle k and says no way would his teenage son would do such a thing.
"I wouldnt mind if my son was out after 10pm because I know he would not be robbing a Circle k," he continued.
"In the Circle k incident there were juveniles involved," explained Officer Javon Tyler. "A lot of parents don't know who their child is hanging out with that's important to always know who their friends are."
Now that school is out, police want to remind every one of Shreveport's curfew ordinance. Those under the age of 17 are supposed to be at home from ten at night until five in the morning. The only exception? If the minor is accompanied by a licensed adult at least 21 years of age.
"They have a tendency to want to stay out past hours however we don't give any exception to school being out," added Tyler.
Authorities want your help too parents.
"We strongly encourage parents to always be aware of where their kids are at all times throughout the hours of the night," said Taylor. "We have parents that work late hours and leave their kids with older siblings call to check up on your kids."
Trust an assurance Rust stands firm on.
"He's raised different and he knows there's consequences at home rather than with the police if he was out robbing Circle k's," concluded Rust.
