A 15-year-old boy from Sylvan Lake is facing armed robbery charges.

RCMP allege the boy brandished a handgun as he robbed the Bayshore Market on Lakeshore Drive on March 6.

No one was hurt during the robbery, police said.

The boy, who can't be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, is in custody and will make a court appearance later this week.

Sylvan Lake is about 170 kilometres north of Calgary.
