Investigators were questioning a 12-year-old boy who robbed a fellow student in a boy's bathroom at a North Mayfair school Friday afternoon, using a BB gun that was a replica of a handgun.
The robbery took place about 2:40 p.m. at Palmer Elementary School, 5051 N. Kenneth Ave. One juvenile was in police custody on suspicion of robbing another juvenile.
The 12-year-old robbed a 13-year-old of $5.
The younger boy caught the older in a restroom in the school's annex building and put the replica gun to his chest, according to a police report. The attacker told the older boy to "give me your money," and took the money.
The victim knew who the robber was, and told school officials and police. When a police officer questioned the younger boy, he admitted he had a black plastic BB gun, and the officer found it and confiscated it.
