Whitehall police responded to a robbery at 7:35 p.m. Sept. 16 at GameStop, 3733 E. Broad St.

An employee told police a man entered the store and asked to see a video-game console.

After the employee fetched the console and placed it on the counter, the man took it and ran from the store, reports said.

The employee chased the suspect, but the suspect punched the employee, then rode away on a bike, according to reports.

Police have a video recording of the incident from inside the store. Officers sent notice to other retail stores in the event the suspect or another person attempts to return the console for an exchange or refund.

* Police charged a 14-year-old Whitehall boy with possession of a weapon in a school safety zone, a fifth-degree felony, at 10:35 a.m. Sept. 21 at Whitehall-Yearling High School, 675 S. Yearling Road.

Police reported a student told an officer and a school administrator that the suspect had given him a knife to hold.

The boy told police "he didn't feel right" having it and "did not want to get in trouble."

Police contacted the father of the 14-year-old and both he and his son were cooperative, police said.

The boy said he sometimes carried a knife to protect himself when he experienced trouble at another school district but gave it to a different boy at school because he thought he might be searched, according to reports.
