Officers arrested the 53-year-old suspect and confiscated the weapon.

Girl Scouts released the following statement Monday:

“The safety of the girls is of paramount importance to Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio,” the statement said. “There is no record of anything like this ever occurring in the past 90 years since Girl Scouts were established in the area. The San Gorgonio Council has established rules for door-to-door and cookie booth selling, and provides mandatory training for all adults and girls.”

The organization says girls are trained to never sell cookies without an adult present, unless they are senior or ambassador scouts.
