May 25, 2013 at 3:13 PM

NEW YORK, May 25 (UPI) -- New York police said they have arrested a pint-sized 15-year-old who younger boys said mugged them, demanding $1 bills.

The suspect allegedly approached younger boys in the Carroll Gardens section of Brooklyn and asked for $1. If the boys refused, the teen would brandish a razor blade to demand a dollar be handed over, the New York Post reported Saturday.

Police said most of the alleged attempted muggings were unsuccessful. The teen allegedly made off with $12 in one incident, while a boy turned over his wallet in another.

The suspect was apprehended at the Carroll Street subway station and the victims identified him at the police station.
