ARDMORE, Okla. -- An Ardmore teenager has been arrested after trying to rob a local fast food restaurant. Ardmore Police say it happened at the Burger and Fries Restaurant on North Washington.
Police say a 13-year old black male went up to the drive-thru window and pulled out an air gun and demanded cash from a female employee at around 8 p.m. Wednesday.
Police say the boy did not make away with any cash because the woman screamed. The boy ran away, and police arrested him shortly afterward.
"She believed the gun was real, and it scared her so your initial reaction is, ‘Oh my goodness, a thirteen-year-old boy is pointing a gun at me,’ and yeah she was scared," Lt. Eric Hamblin of the Ardmore Police Department says.
The 13-year-old was booked into a juvenile detention facility with armed robbery charges.
