Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a boy has been sentenced for two robberies in Bracknell.
The 14-year-old boy from Lewisham, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to two counts of robbery at Reading Magistrates Youth Court yesterday (16/11).
He was given a 10-month referral order and ordered to pay £75 compensation to each victim.
On 12 March this year, at around 6pm, the boy pursued, threatened and robbed a teenage boy of his iPhone in Braccan Walk.
Then, on 16 March, at around 4.45pm, the boy threatened and robbed another teenage boy of his bag in Barn Close.
The boy was arrested the following day and charged on 28 July.
Staff investigator Elle Read said: “Thames Valley Police takes robberies seriously and will not tolerate those who commit them.
“It is imperative that young people involved in this type of crime are given the opportunity for rehabilitation and learn the consequences their behaviour can have on victims and witnesses.
“The victims and witnesses in this case have been incredibly brave in their continued support, which has played a huge part in bringing this offender to justice.
“Please do contact us if you have any concerns about criminal activity in your neighbourhood.
“You can report these concerns online or by calling 101, or for 100% anonymity, you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
