Boy on trial for knife robbery

A 15-YEAR-OLD boy has been served with a Book of Evidence and returned for trial for robbing a woman in Dublin at knife point.

THE teenager had been charged at the Dublin Children's Court with robbery at Fumbally Lane on September 29 last year.

Garda Brendan Whitty had told the city's juvenile court that it was alleged the boy approached the woman "and produced a knife".

It was claimed the boy then "pushed the female against a wall and proceeded to rob her of her possessions, an iPhone to the value of €400 and her handbag".
