Liz Wylie, Mountain View police spokeswoman, said that two men approached the boy after walking out of the liquor store, located at 239 West El Camino Real. One of the men had his hand in a jacket pocket and told the boy he was carrying a gun, although no weapon was ever seen.
The boy gave them his iPod and the men fled in a brown vehicle of an undetermined make and model, Wylie said.
The liquor store's video surveillance hard drive was full, and did not record any of the incident. The robbers appeared to be in their 20s.
The boy, who he was on his way home from a friend's house, was not injured but was "shaken up," Wylie said.
