A youth has been charged after an attempted robbery at a business in Balgonie, Sask.

He then fled without stealing any money or items and was located by RCMP a short time later and arrested.

An employee who was present at the time of the incident was not injured.

A 14-year-old boy from the Balgonie area is scheduled to appear in youth court on a charge of robbery Nov. 1. He cannot be identified under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
