— Sedgwick County prosecutors say three teens who faked a robbery at a Subway restaurant in Wichita were playing a dangerous game called "Urban Skittles."

A statement from the district attorney's office says the game originated in England. It is played by one or more youths who run into a random business and order everyone to the floor. The youths then count the number of people on the floor before leaving.

The Wichita Eagle reports that's what happened Monday when a young man walked into the restaurant, put his hand in his pocket and ordered everyone down. Police say two teens with him ran out while he counted the people, then he fled without taking any money.

There was no word on whether the youths will be charged.
