Police: 9-year-old boy robbed at gunpoint

This morning police in Hamden are hunting for a man who they say held up a 9-year-old boy at gunpoint and stole his bike.



They say the man pointed the gun in the child's face while he was riding over the weekend.



Investigators believe the same man robbed a Dollar General store a short time later, threatening employees with a gun before smashing his way through the sliding glass doors.
