13 Year Old Arrested After Throwing Rocks At Victims & Demanding Shoes



Teen arrested for robbery, assaults

A 13-year-old boy faces robbery and assault with a weapon charges following two separate incidents Tuesday evening.

Approximately 8:20 p.m. a man and woman were walking on Scottsdale Drive near Wilsonview Avenue when they were approached by two youths. One of the youths spat at the woman but missed.

After a brief exchange of words the victims became concerned due to the youths’ erratic behaviour and started to walk away. The same youth who had spat at them then began throwing rocks at the victims as they ran from the area.

Approximately 20 minutes later another adult male was walking in the area of Stone Road West and Scottsdale Drive when the same teen approached and asked for his shoes. The victim tried to ignore him and keep walking but was punched in the back of the head while the teen continued to demand his sneakers.

Officers arrived a short time later and arrested the suspect inside a nearby business where he had followed the victim.

A 13-year-old Guelph boy is charged with attempted robbery, assault with a weapon and two counts of assault. He was held for a bail hearing Wednesday.
