A 15-year-old student charged for robbery with violence appeared at the Children’s Court on January 24th. He was the second of two suspects charged in relation to the incident which occurred on October 19th, 2021. The matter was postponed to March 18th.

According to police reports, around 11:15 am on October 19th, 2021 a 16-year-old residing in Diego Martin was in the porch of his home when he was allegedly grabbed and slammed onto a wall by an armed intruder as he attempted to re-enter the house.

The teenager also observed a second person standing in the porch who allegedly relieved him of his jewellery and cell phone valued at $3,250, while the first intruder pointed the firearm at him.

The assailants then both ran from the house. PC Giles of the West End Criminal Investigations Department (CID) continued investigations which resulted in the teenager being charged for the offence. The other suspect, a 17-year-old boy, was charged on October 23rd, 2021.
