Little Rock police took an 11-year-old boy into custody for the aggravated robbery of a 68-year-old woman.

Officers were called to the scene in the 3500 block of S. University Ave. at approximately 7 p.m. Saturday.

On the way, police were advised by communications that four juveniles allegedly hit the victim in the head with a plastic gun and demanded her money. The victim said the suspects ran toward Colonel Glenn Rd. and were possibly near the 6200 block.

Police found four suspects matching the victim's description standing near Colonel Glenn Rd. They were each put into patrol units and officers also found a fake handgun near where they were.

The victim then explained to police she was at an ATM when the suspects approached her, demanded money and flashed the fake gun.

She was getting back into her vehicle when she accidentally rolled down the window, meaning to lock her door, and one of the juveniles allegedly struck her on the left cheek with the toy weapon.

All four suspects were taken to the 12th S. Substation for questioning.

After they were interviewed, police arrested the 11-year-old for aggravated robbery and transported him to juvenile intake. The other three suspects were released without charges and picked up by their parents.
