PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Portland police say they have arrested a man who threatened a 13-year-old boy with a gun and stole his hoverboard.

KOIN-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1VawYeY ) that Kwaleam Pinkly was arrested after the incident Tuesday.

Court documents say the boy had been walking with two friends when a vehicle pulled up alongside them and a backseat passenger pointed a gun at the boy, who dropped the hoverboard and ran off.

Police say they later found the 20-year-old suspect with the gun and hoverboard inside the vehicle.

Court documents say Pinkly admitted to the incident and wrote a letter apologizing to the boy for threatening his life over a hoverboard.
