Kids selling lemonade robbed

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Children selling lemonade in the Cleveland suburbs have told police they were robbed by teenagers who pulled up in a rusty old car and threatened to beat them up.

Eleven-year-old Omar Schpeb says he and his friends got scared and handed over their money. But he tells WJW-TV he chased the car as it drove away and the teens tossed back some of the cash.

The kids estimate they lost at least $13.50 to the thieves, described as two guys wearing blue hoodies and skinny jeans and three teenage girls.

Parents of the children say a kind person donated $20 at the police station in Strongsville to make up for the theft.

Police are asking for tips to track down the teens.
