Everybody in North Carolina does not love the kids!
Police in North Carolina are searching for a suspect accused of robbing a 9-year-old boy’s lemonade stand at gunpoint.
The Union County Sheriff’s Office in Monroe, N.C., said the boy was approached by a teenage suspect who pointed a gun at the boy’s stomach, demanded money and fled.
The suspect was described as a Black male wearing a camouflage hat and black t-shirt.
“While searching the area for the suspect, deputies located a trail in the woods where a camo hat, a black colored BB handgun and the stolen metal tin were recovered,” the Union County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. “Deputies believe the suspect left a bicycle and walked from there to the lemonade stand before the robbery.”
According to the police report, less than $20 in cash was taken from the boy.
The community has since shown the boy an outpouring of support, with some community members even purchasing a lawnmower for the young entrepreneur.
