A 12-year-old boy used a BB gun to rob a 10-year-old boy running a neighborhood lemonade stand on Monday in western Pennsylvania, police said.

Johnstown Sgt. Patrick Goggin said the older child approached the stand Monday and threatened the younger boy with what looked like a handgun, CBS Pittsburgh reported.

The boys “got into a wrestling match over the money box” before the older boy was able to take off with a stolen $30, Mr. Goggin said.

Three other children helped police track the boy down. The suspect will be charged in juvenile court, CBS Pittsburgh reported.
