— An 11-year-old boy who attempted a carjacking in December in Portland pleaded guilty to a robbery charge in juvenile court and was sentenced to probation for the rest of the year.

Deputy Trial Court Administrator Neal Japport told KATU the boy also pleaded guilty to harassment. Under terms of a plea agreement, the boy is not allowed to have any weapons or ride in any cars that contain weapons.

The boy and two siblings were placed in foster care in January.

Police say the boy and a 7-year-old accomplice used his dad's .22-caliber Derringer on Dec. 8 to threaten a woman in a church parking lot. She refused to give up her truck and wallet, drove away and called police.
