A man from out of state is behind bars this morning suspected of robbing a 13 year old boy in the Toy's R Us parking lot in Chico.

32 year old Jeffrey Karr of Oklahoma was arrested after Chico police say he robbed the teen Monday morning.

Police say the boy asked Karr if he had a cigarette lighter he could borrow.

Karr then told the teen to meet him at his jeep, where he pulled out what appeared to be a gun, taking the teen's cell phone and money.

The 13 year old was able to get away.

Karr and a female driver of the jeep were both arrested and face several charges, including robbery.
