SAN MARCOS (CNS) - A 14-year-old boy is in custody Friday accused of trying to rob a San Marcos doughnut shop at knifepoint in order to pay a debt owed to an acquaintance, authorities said.

The attempted armed robbery of the Yum Yum Donut Shop at 1240 E. Mission Road was reported shortly before 11 p.m. Thursday, according to San Diego County sheriff's Sgt. Dan Lopez.

A clerk called 911 and said someone was trying to rob him. Deputies arrived and found the clerk wrestling with the teen, who jumped over a counter and announced he was going to take the money, Lopez said.

The teen was arrested on suspicion of attempted armed robbery and later booked into Juvenile Hall.

According to the sergeant, the teen told the arresting deputies that he needed to pay a debt to an acquaintance.
