Macon police arrested two teenage boys Friday afternoon after a burglary attempt and aggravated assault that were apparently gang-related, according to a police report.
Police arrested a 16-year-old and a 15-year-old, both of whom live in the 2800 block of Blount Street in Macon. The two teens were charged with burglary, aggravated assault and participation in a criminal gang activity.
According to the report, the victims were at a residence on the 2800 block Antioch Road about 3 p.m. when the teens allegedly kicked in the front door. They pepper-sprayed one of the victims, threw bricks at the others and fired a gun at them. They also allowed a pit bull to enter the residence.
After police were called, the teens fled to their residence on Blount Street. Police surrounded the house and one of the officers approached the dog, which was on the front porch. The dog became aggressive and charged the officer, who fired his weapon at the dog, striking it in the head.

Officers spoke with the mother of one of the teens and searched the house, finding a bottle of pepper spray and several bullets. The teens were taken to the police station for further questioning.
