July 7, 2011 at 1:14 PM

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio, July 7 (UPI) -- The parents of a group of Ohio children whose lemonade stand was robbed by teenagers said an anonymous donor gave $20 to pay back their losses.

Strongsville youngsters Omar Schpeb, 11, Decklin Walsh, 11, and his sister Maiti, 4, said the group of three teenage girls and two teenage boys pulled up to their Park Lane Drive lemonade stand Saturday and drove off with at least $13.50, WJW-TV, Cleveland, reported Thursday.

"As a parent, this is upsetting. This shouldn't happen at a lemonade stand. It should be simple summer fun and they made it frightening for the kids," mother April Walsh said.

The parents said an anonymous donor gave police $20 to replace the stolen money.

Strongsville Police are asking members of the public to contact them with information about the thieves, who the children said were traveling in a rusted green car.
