WILLIAMSBURG - A 12-year-old Williamsburg boy who allegedly held up a woman with a fake gun was taken into custody Thursday.

The volunteer Shomrim Patrol apprehended the boy, who neighbors say has long caused problems in the area.

One neighbor is so upset about the 12-year-old's alleged actions that he's calling on the New York City Housing Authority to evict the boy and his mother from the Wythe Houses.
