EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — A 12-year-old boy — accused of pointing a revolver at a bikini barista in Everett, Wash., threatening to shoot her and then riding off on his bike with the contents of her tip jar — has been charged with first-degree robbery.

The Daily Herald says the boy has also been charged with robbery in an Aug. 28 holdup at a south Everett market.

The robbery at the Hillbilly Hotties coffee stand took place Sept. 2.

Police believe the boy borrowed the gun from a 16-year-old boy who’s being investigated in a July 23 robbery at a sandwich shop. In that case, the Arlington teen and another young man wore white surgical masks and one of them pointed a gun at an employee. The 16-year-old has been arrested.

The 12-year-old was arrested Sept. 6.
