Very young robbery suspect

A very young Moncton boy has admitted to holding up a convenience store with a knife.

The 12 year old boy admitted to robbing the Second Avenue Convenience store while wearing a mask last month. He also admitted to paying someone $20 dollars to act as his getaway driver. His mother turned him in to the Mounties.

A psychiatric assessment found the boy criminally responsible and fit for trial. He’ll be sentenced May 10.
