Teen hit woman in laptop robbery
a 16-YEAR-OLD boy, who pummelled a young woman in a bid to steal her laptop after he followed her off a train, has been remanded on bail pending sentence by Dublin Children's Court.
He pleaded guilty to robbery of the woman at Donabate train station on March 14 last year. Judge John O'Connor asked for a Probation Service report to be prepared and adjourned sentencing until May 25.
The court heard claims the boy grabbed on to her backpack which contained her laptop and "swung her to the ground".
