Authorities believe the teen left a bicycle and walked from there to the lemonade stand.

Neighbours told WCNC-TV that the boy's organic lemonade stand is well known in the neighbourhood, and that he is an entrepreneur who also mows lawns in the community.

Union County Deputies are investigating after they say a teen robbed a 9-year-old boy selling lemonade around 3:00 p.m. Saturday.

"It's pretty low, despicable in my book and I can't believe someone would stoop that low to steal money from him", said the boys father.

The Union County Sheriff's Office said the youngster was approached by a teenager who held a gun to the child's stomach whilst demanding money.

Almost every weekend the boy has been setting up his lemonade stand along a round-a-bout in the neighborhood so he could buy a new lawnmower for his other weekend business.

Public information officer Tony Underwood tells NPR that the robber got away with $17.

His family is not letting this incident ruin his dream. "In today's world, people are very bold", he said.

On Sunday, the 9-year-old was selling lemonade again - with his mom and dad this time.

Part of that process includes questions from the boy about why the robbery happened.

Less than $20 (£15) was stolen, the Charlotte Observer newspaper reported. He says a camouflage hat and BB pistol found nearby may be checked for fingerprints and DNA.

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