Omaha, NE -- Police say an 11-year-old boy robbed for his bike by an 18-year-old with a gun. The 18-year-old and a 16-year-old have been booked on robbery charges.
At around 6 pm Tuesday evening, the 11-year-old boy was walking his bike near 51st and Maple St. when he was confronted by three boys. Police say one of the boys put his hands on the bike and asked him to give it up. Then another told the victim he would shoot him if he didn't give him his bike. He allegedly showed a weapon in the waistband of his pants. After taking the bike the victim's mother tracked down and confronted the 3 kids a few blocks away. A Good Samaritan was able to get his bike back.
Seyvon Barnes has been charged with Felony Robbery. He faced a judge Thursday afternoon and was given a $75,000 bond.
"It just upsets me, you're almost an adult, you're almost an adult. If you need to steal a bike from an 11-year-old child, get a job, get your own bike," said the victim’s mother.
Police say Barnes actually threatened the 11-year-old with a B.B. gun and not a real firearm. A 16-year-old was also charged with robbery. The third person involved wasn't arrested.
