Brandon police say someone in that city was out last night trying to rob trick-or-treaters of their candy.
They got a call shortly after 9:00 p.m. from a 14 year old boy who was going door to door for Halloween when he was approached by someone brandishing a knife.
The boy escaped the encounter without injury or loss of his Halloween haul.
The Brandon police haven’t provided a description of the would-be robber, other than saying they believe their suspect is another teenage male.
