The Union County Sheriff's Office said Sunday that the stickup happened near a traffic roundabout in Monroe.

Deputies said the young drink vendor reported that a male teenager with a camouflage hat and black shirt placed a black handgun to the boy's stomach Saturday, demanded money and then fled on foot.

Sheriff's spokesman Tony Underwood said less than $20 in cash was stolen.

Authorities found a camouflage hat, a black BB gun and a stolen metal tin in some nearby woods. Deputies believe the suspect left a bicycle in the brush for his getaway and walked to the lemonade stand.
