Deputies believe the suspect left a bicycle at an unknown location and walked to the lemonade stand.

Because who would ever imagine a lemonade stand armed robbery?

A nine-year-old boy selling lemonade was robbed at gunpoint for $20 in an act that has shocked police. The teen allegedly stuck a black handgun to the boys stomach and demanded the money.

David Smith was selling cool drinks in his North Carolina housing development to raise money for his landscaping business.

The money that he raised after the robbery will be used to buy a riding lawnmower, his father said. The 9-year-old lemonade vendor said a teenager wearing a similar hat and a black shirt pointed a black handgun at him and took his cash box Saturday afternoon in Monroe, about 30 miles southeast of Charlotte.

The police have been unable to locate the suspect so far.
