OCHLOCKNEE, Ga. (AP) - A 90-year-old store owner in south Georgia is back at work after she was attacked during a robbery.
 
WALB-TV (http://bit.ly/UiYrxx) reports three teenage boys walked into Ethel Davis' store in Ochlocknee Wednesday afternoon, shoved her to the ground and stole an undisclosed amount of money.
 
Police say the suspects, ages 12, 15 and 16, were arrested on robbery charges. Police say the 15 and 12-year-old boys were released to guardians Wednesday afternoon. Authorities say the 16-year-old boy is being held in the Loftiss Regional Youth Detention Center.
 
Davis - who has owned the store for more than 60 years - was treated by medics on the scene but was not hospitalized. Police say the store has been robbed twice in 10 days.
 
Ochlocknee is about 50 miles south of Albany.
