16 year old Derby girl appears in court charged with city centre robberies

Posted on 16th November 2016

Yesterday we announced that a 16 year-old girl had been arrested for robbery in connection with a disturbance involving young people on bikes in the city centre. 

Today that girl, who we cannot name for legal reasons, appeared at Southern Derby Magistrates’ Court charged with three offences of robbery and one of assault. 

She has been bailed in secure accommodation to re-appear at court next week on Monday, November 21. 

Detective Sergeant Sally Dachtler, who is leading the investigation into the incidents, said: “We are pleased to have made this arrest and be able to bring this young girl to court where the legal system will take its course. 

“The investigation continues with the further arrests of a 16 year-old boy and 15 year-old girl and we anticipate that more arrests will follow. 

“In the meantime colleagues in the City Centre Safer Neighbourhood team are continuing with additional patrols to provide re-assurance and help prevent further offences.” 

Anyone with information about the activity is asked to contact Sally or the Derby City Centre Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101.
