Group honors Pa. lemonade stand robbery victim, 10

JOHNSTOWN, Pennsylvania (AP) — A college business group has honored a 10-year-old Pennsylvania boy whose lemonade stand was robbed by a 12-year-old boy with a BB gun.

The (Johnstown) Tribune-Democrat ( ) says 10-year-old Anthony Sanders, of Johnstown, was trying to raise $400 to buy a PlayStation 4 videogame system when he was robbed of $30 last month. Police have charged the suspect in juvenile court.

On Wednesday, the Enactus chapter at the St. Francis University School of business visited Anthony. The organization promotes entrepreneurial spirit as a way to improve society. They gave him gift certificates, a plaque and a book on entrepreneurism.

Anthony says he was back in business the day after the robbery in Johnstown, 60 miles east of Pittsburgh. He wasn’t intimidated by the crime, saying, “Nope, not at all.”
