Johnstown Sgt. Patrick Goggin says the 12-year-old came to the lemonade stand on Monday with what looked like a handgun in his pocket. Goggins says the boys were wrestling over the box of money before the older boy took $30 and ran away.
Three other children chased the boy home and helped police track him down. That’s when police found that the boy had a BB gun.
Police aren’t identifying the young robber because he’ll be charged in juvenile court where most cases remain confidential.
