Ice cream vendor robbed
Denton police arrested a 19-year-old man Saturday evening after an ice cream cart vendor identified him as the robber who took his money at gunpoint. The vendor called about 8 p.m. from the 9100 block of Teasley Lane. He said he was pushing his cart through a mobile home park when a man came out of one of the trailers and put a pistol to his head. The man demanded his cash, the vendor said, and he handed over $170. Then the man ran away. He was able to show officers which trailer the man exited and to describe him. Officers found the suspect and charged him with aggravated robbery.
