Boy robbed at gunpoint gets new lawnmower from Lowe’s

August 7, 2018

A Lowe’s store has gifted a nine-year-old boy who was robbed at a lemonade stand with a new lawnmower.

WCNC said deputies believed a teenager with a BB gun targeted Mark on Saturday. The boy said he was saving up for a new lawnmower for his other business.

“I was selling lemonade,” said Mark. “Then he grabbed and showed a gun at me and then ran away.”

Investigators are still working to find the suspect. Meanwhile, a Mooresville-based Lowe’s heard about the story and gave Mark a new lawnmower.

“I got my riding lawnmower, and I’m so thankful,” Mark said. “It feels great, it feels like the hard work paid off.”
