Boy charged with robbery involving a Derby dog

A teenage boy has been charged with robbery following an incident where a dog was stolen in Derby.

It is in connection with an incident reported at River Gardens, near the Silk Milk in Derby City Centre, at approximately 7.25pm on Friday 26 February.

Police say a man was assaulted and required treatment at hospital, while an unspecified amount of money and a Yorkshire Terrier were stolen.

The man was treated for facial injuries, including a fractured cheekbone, and the dog was later reunited with her grateful owners.

Three teenagers were arrested shortly after the incident and questioned by Derbyshire police officers.

A 14-year-old, from Normanton, was charged yesterday evening and remanded into custody on the charge of robbery. He is due to appear in court next week.

Two other boys, who were arrested alongside the 14-year-old following the initial incident, have been bailed pending further inquiries.
