Robbing Children Just Doesn’t Work Without Mom’s Wallet

The problem with robbing children is that they usually don’t have any money. So when a group of 20-somethings jammed a gun into the back of one 12-year-old boy walking with his mother and 4-year-old sister in the Prospect Park South neighborhood of Brooklyn, it was mom who supplied the funds. After she gave them an “undetermined amount of money,” the suspects fled. Perhaps to go buy cocaine at a day care.
