A gas station in Rishon Lezion was robbed Sunday morning, shortly after midnight by two minors, brothers from Ramle.

After arriving at the gas station, one of the suspects, proceeded to steal a drink from the gas station's store. Shortly after, the second suspect went back and paid for it.

Next, the first suspect went back inside and said "This is a robbery. Give me the money." The cashier handed over the money and called police.

The second suspect went back inside the store and returned the money, though police were already on their way.

When officers arrived on the scene, the brothers were in the middle of a fist fight with themselves and with the cashier.

The two were arrested and released following an investigation into the incident. It was not made clear with what crime they were charged.
