A nine-year-old boy selling lemonade was reportedly robbed at gunpoint on Saturday by a teen wearing a camouflage. The assailant reportedly pointed a gun at the child's stomach and demanded he hand over his earnings — about $17, according to officials.

Police later found a camouflage hat, alongside a black BB gun in a nearby wooded area, according to Fox News.

"I think people are capable of a lot of things, but not robbing a child at a lemonade stand — that takes it to a new level," said Union County Sheriff's Office Chief Communications Officer Tony Underwood.

Police are asking neighbors to come forward with surveillance video that may have captured the incident.
