    Tulsa police arrested a 13-year-old boy after he reportedly attacked an elderly man who was getting off a bus in north Tulsa.

    It happened Thursday evening near Pine and Peoria.

    Reports show the teenager approached the 70-year-old and said "give me money". After that, he reportedly raised his shirt to show what appeared to be a black pistol.

    Police say the suspect took off when the man called police, but officers found him not long after hiding at a nearby home.

    The boy is in jail accused of attempted robbery even though police say the gun turned out only to be a BB gun.

    Police say the kid has been in trouble with the law before.
