12-yr. old armed robber settles for candy while owner calls cops

CCTV footage revealed the boy burst into the store on 8 May with a scarf around his face and hood over his head.

He told the shopkeeper, Jasbir Guliani, to fill a black plastic bag with cash. Mr Guliani said there was no money in the till and, on instruction to load the bag with cigarettes instead, told the boy he was underage.

The retailer later offered him sweets and crisps instead.
