10-year-old accused of robbery arrested again

Police say that one of the two 10-year-old boys arrested and accused of robbing an older woman Wednesday was arrested again on Thursday.



Authorities say the boy was arrested for setting a fire inside a store.



The previous day, he and another 10-year-old were arrested for trying to take a 67-year-old woman's purse. 



Reports say the two struggled with the woman, and that one of the boys slapped her before they both took off.



Police say they caught the boys nearby, and they have been charged with misdemeanor assault and reckless robbery.
