Police in North Carolina are searching for a teenager who they say robbed a nine-year-old boy at gunpoint while the child was selling lemonade.
The child told police he was operating his lemonade stand in the U.S. state of North Carolina on Saturday afternoon when a teenage boy placed a handgun to his stomach and demanded money.
Authorities believe the teen left a bicycle and walked from there to the lemonade stand.
Union County Sheriff's Office spokesman Tony Underwood said Monday that investigators are still looking for the suspect, who the 9-year-old lemonade vendor said pointed a black gun at him and took his cash box.
Phillip Smith, the boy's father, said he never thought something like this would happen in their neighborhood.

In the statement on Wednesday, Novak said that higher production was due to the need to maintain the market's stability. On Monday, a Reuters survey found that OPEC production reached a 2018 high in July.
The teenager allegedly shoved a gun toward the boy's stomach and demanded money before running away, the sheriff's office said. "I think people are capable of a lot of things but not robbing a child at a lemonade stand".
Almost every weekend the boy has been setting up his lemonade stand along a round-a-bout in the neighborhood so he could buy a new lawnmower for his other weekend business.
Neighbors told WSOC-TV in Charlotte that the boy went back out and began selling lemonade despite the robbery.
