Video: Boys robbed at gun point – At lemonade stand!

What is the world coming to? Two 13-year-old boys running a lemonade stand in suburban Illinois were robbed at gunpoint by two other teenagers who made off with $30 in profits. 

Surveillance video captured the exact moment Jude Peterson and his friend were robbed outside Jude’s home in Peoria, southwest of Chicago.

Some good news

When they reset up their stand for the first time, more than a dozen officers from the Peoria Police Department came by to support them.

‘I may have cried a little,’ Jude’s father Nathan said, according to the PJ Star. 

‘Our hearts are overwhelmed by the love and support of the community – people from totally different backgrounds, police, everyone – all rallying around these boys.’
