Nine-year-old’s lemonade stand robbed by BB gun-toting suspect

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(MONROE, N.C.) — A 9-year-old North Carolina boy running a lemonade stand was robbed by an armed suspect Saturday, police said.The boy was selling lemonade in Monroe, about 25 miles from Charlotte, when he was approached by a teen who stuck what appeared to be a handgun to the boy’s stomach, demanded money and fled on foot, the Union County Sheriff’s Office said.The boy had less than $20 in cash on him, police spokesman Tony Underwood told ABC News affiliate WSOC.Officials believe the suspect, described as a black male in his teens, made his getaway on a bicycle after the robbery. He was seen wearing a camouflage hat and a black shirt.While searching for the suspect, deputies found a trail that led into the woods where the hat, a black-colored BB handgun and a stolen metal tin containing the boy’s cash were recovered, police said.Police are still searching for the suspect.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Official: Berardi extends at Sassuolo

first_imgDomenico Berardi has officially signed a new contract holding him to Sassuolo until June 2024. The 25-year-old forward spent his entire career with the Neroverdi, save for a brief period in a co-ownership deal with Juventus.

His previous contract had been due to expire in June 2023, so this is a one-season extension. Berardi has scored six goals in six Serie A games this season, plus two assists. His record in a Sassuolo jersey is of 80 goals and 51 assists in 236 competitive games. However, he also has a notoriously short fuse and received six red cards with 61 bookings.
