Police are investigating a Cumberland County robbery involving a 12-year-old victim.

Around 3:20 p.m. on Monday, the West Shore Regional Police responded to a report of a young man being robbed in the area of South 2nd Street and Herman Avenue in Lemoyne.

Officers said that the 12-year-old victim and several friends were approached by a man asking if they had any money. The man told them that he needed the money for gas so he could visit his daughter in the hospital.
