[March 13, 2009]  OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Police have arrested an unlikely suspect in the armed robbery of an eastern Omaha bar -- a 12-year-old boy.

Police said the boy is one of three people suspected of holding up the California Bar early Thursday morning. Investigators said the boy and two men walked into the bar around 12:45 a.m., and one of the men pulled a gun. Officers said the 12-year-old and an 18-year-old then demanded money from the Keno register.

Police say the 18-year-old punched a female employee, and the three suspects fled the area.

Officers found and arrested the 18-year-old and the 12-year-old near the scene.

Police continue to search for a third suspect.
