Robber posing as a cop threatens 5-year-old with gun

Central Florida police are looking for a robber who posed as a cop, forced his way into a home and pointed a gun at a 5-year-old boy.

“I’ll kill you,” the robber told the boy, according to

The robbery happened last week in Orange County. There is a $1,000 reward for the suspect’s arrest.

"He's dangerous," Jane Watrel, with the Orange County Sheriff's Office, told the TV station. "The fact that he's impersonating a cop is bad, but the violence of it is worse."

The boy’s father, who also was at home during the robbery, said the boy now refuses to open the front door.
