A 12-year-old boy is being held in detention for robbing at gunpoint a 14-year-old boy of candy.
The boy is charged with aggravated robbery and is being held in the Lucas County Juvenile Justice Center.
The 14-year-old boy told police he and two others were walking home from school on Wednesday, just before 5 p.m., at Stanley Court and Wilson Place when they were approached by a youth who pulled out a black handgun and demanded the 14 year old's stuff.
The victim had only candy and gave it to the armed youth, according to the police report. The armed youth ran but police spotted him walking in the same general area and the youth was arrested.
The 12-year-old is to appear in court again on March 18.
