Ten-year-old robbed of haircut money

A Columbus ten-year-old was robbed of $20 Thursday afternoon.

Kathy Jones told police that she gave her son, Zeddie Price, $20 to get his hair braided at Angie's Beauty Plus on Buena Vista Road.

Jones said he called her from a neighbor's house and told her that on his way to the shop a man took the money his mother had given him.

"He picked him up, saw the money in his hand, took it and ran off," Jones said.

Jones said she went after the suspect and told him to give her the money back, but he "took off running," she said.

Police later arrested a juvenile in connection with the robbery.
