Teens Plead Guilty In Bag Snatching Case

September 8, 2015

Appearing in Magistrates Court today [Sept 8], two teenagers pleaded guilty to charges involving snatching a woman’s bag and iPhone.

18-year-old Raheem Wray and 17-year-old Stanwon Swan both pleaded guilty following an incident which saw a woman’s bag and her iPhone being snatched on 12th August 2015.

The Crown Prosecutor told Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo that the pair of teenagers had followed the woman, and on Pitts Bay Road, she sat down and starting texting.

At that point one grabbed the iPhone while the other grabbed her bag, said to contain items to the value of $900. Both teenagers ran off and were chased as far as Gorham Road.

The Crown Prosecutor told the Magistrate that CCTV evidence along with positive identification to Police by one of the defendant’s mother assisted Police in arresting the teens.

The Magistrate ordered Social Inquiry reports on both teenagers and set sentencing for 28th October. He granted each teenager bail at $2,000 with each required to have a surety.
