18-year old young man tries to rob 12-year old Maryland boy with toy gun

A 12-year old boy in Severn, Maryland, was approached by an 18-year old male, who then tried to rob the boy using a toy pistol.  The boy fled the scene.

From an article:

Dejon Arnold, 18, of the 8200 block of Autumn Lake Court in Severn, was charged with robbery, theft less than $1,000 and second-degree assault, according to online court records. 
Officers responded to the 8200 block of Clearwater Court at 4:45 p.m. and spoke with the victim and his father. The boy told officers that he had been walking in the area of Clearwater Court and Indian Drive at 3:15 p.m. when Arnold approached him and displayed what looked like a handgun, police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said. 
Arnold demanded the victim's coat. The boy refused and then fled; he was not injured. 
Police were able to find and arrest Arnold. Officers determined the gun used in the incident to be fake, Mulcahy said.
