We received more information about the arrest of three juveniles in connection with the recent robberies in the neighborhood in the last several months. The suspects are ages 13, 13, and 15 and live in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Cops would not release the names, but the 15-year-old has been arrested for 10 robbery charges, and one grand larceny, since 2004 — including these six alleged incidents. The other two do not have prior arrests, according to the cop source.
The three boys were charged with robberies in connection to six incidents since February. We also got an email from the city’s law department today, who handles cases for juveniles. Per spokeswoman Elizabeth Thomas:
On April 25, 2009, three juveniles, Ahsan H., Mohammed A., and Adam D. were arrested for multiple robberies that had occurred in Brooklyn Heights over a period of time from February through April of 2009. The cases were referred to the Law Department’s Family Court Division. A preliminary hearing was held in Brooklyn Family Court before the Honorable Daniel Turbow. Judge Turbow ordered the remand of the three youths to the custody of the Department of Juvenile Justice. On May 1, 2009, the youths were arraigned on multiple charges and were ordered to be held in the custody pending further proceedings scheduled for May 7, 2009. Assistant Corporation Counsel Jessica M. Latour, assigned to the Family Court Division’s Major Case Unit, is handling the proceedings for the City.
