US Boy's Lemonade Stand Robbed At Gunpoint for $17
A young US boy has escaped unharmed when he was robbed at gunpoint while selling lemonade.
Nine-year-old Mark was running his lemonade stand in North Carolina when a man approached him and pointed a gun at him.
Mark had been trying to save up to buy a lawnmower for his landscaping business.
“I showed him my box, so I could give him change, and then he grabbed and showed a gun at me in the stomach and then ran away,” Mark told local news.
The suspect made off with that day’s takings - $17.
Police are still looking for the man.
There’s a silverlining, however.
After hearing about Mark’s ordeal, a local hardware shop stepped in, donating a brand-new ride-on mower to the youngster.
