JOHNSTOWN (AP) — A college business group has honored a 10-year-old boy whose lemonade stand was robbed by a 12-year-old boy with a BB gun.

The (Johnstown) Tribune-Democrat reported Anthony Sanders, 10, of Johnstown, was trying to raise $400 to buy a PlayStation 4 video game system when he was robbed of $30 last month. Police have charged the suspect in juvenile court.

On Wednesday, the Enactus chapter at the St. Francis University School of business visited Anthony. The organization promotes entrepreneurial spirit as a way to improve society. They gave him gift certificates, a plaque and a book on entrepreneurism.

Anthony said he was back in business the day after the robbery in Johnstown, 60 miles east of Pittsburgh. He wasn’t intimidated by the crime, saying, “Nope, not at all.”
