A 9-year-old boy was robbed at his lemonade stand in Union County, North Carolina Saturday afternoon.

The Union County Sheriff’s Office says deputies responded to the entrance of St. John’s Forest around 3 p.m.

Deputies say the boy was approached by a black male teen wearing a camouflague hat and black shirt. The teen allegedly stuck a black handgun to the boys stomach and demanded the money. The teen then fled on foot and the boy was not hurt.

Deputies searched the area and found a trail in the woods nearby where the hat, black BB handgun, and a metal tin that contained the cash was found. Deputies believe the suspect left a bicycle and walked from there to the lemonade stand before the robbery.
