A Capitol Wine and Liquor store employee in Troy called police to the scene at around 5:38 pm after a boy came and approached her demanding her to "empty the register." 

The boy did not produce a weapon, according to the worker. He did, however, seem to hide his right hand in his pocket during the altercation.

The boy then fled the scene on foot with the money. 

Police then received a call a few hours later from a woman claiming her son was acting strange. She stated he had a "large sum of money" that he wasn't supposed to have, according to officials.
