US boy, 12, robs lemonade stand with gun

Authorities say a 12-year-old boy used a BB gun to rob a 10-year-old who was running a lemonade stand in Pennsylvania.

Johnstown: Authorities say a 12-year-old boy used a BB gun to rob a 10-year-old who was running a lemonade stand in Pennsylvania.

Johnstown Sgt Patrick Goggin says the 12-year-old approached the stand on Monday with what appeared to be a handgun in his pocket and threatened the younger boy.
Goggin says the boys "got into a wrestling match over the money box" before the older boy took USD 30 and ran away.

Three other children chased the boy home and helped police track him down. That`s when police determined the boy had a BB gun.

Police aren`t identifying the suspect because he`ll be charged in juvenile court where most cases remain confidential.

Johnstown is east of Pittsburgh.
