TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — Call it a lemonade standoff.

A girl whose lemonade stand was robbed of $17.50 chased the thief into a nearby home and called police, who spent nearly an hour trying to coax the man into surrendering.

"The guy came up and was, like, 'Give me your money,"' said 12-year-old Dominique Morefield, who was running the lemonade stand with a group of friends. "I was shocked."

Dominique dashed after the man who ran into a house, and then she called police. Officers persuaded the 18-year-old to come outside and arrested him.
