On Sunday in Monroe, NC, a 9-year-old’s lemonade stand was robbed at gunpoint by a teenager.
According to WNCT, deputies say the young drink vendor reported that a male teenager with a camouflage hat and black shirt placed a black handgun to the boy’s stomach Saturday, demanded money and then fled on foot. Less than $20 in cash was stolen.
A camouflage hat, a black BB handgun and a stolen metal tin were found in some nearby woods. Deputies believe the suspect left a bicycle in the brush for his getaway.
