Guam - A 14-year-old boy has been confined at the Department of Youth Affairs charged with Robbery, Assault, Burglary, Assault on a Police Officer and Underaged Consumption of Alcohol. The 14-year-old is accused of assaulting a man as he was gassing his car at the Mobil Gas Station in Sinajana. The victim did not know the minor, but reported to police that he continually harassed him for money and when he didn't the minor assaulted him more than once. When investigators reviewed surveillance video they saw the boy approach the victim and assaulted him by punching him in the face and kicking him on the leg. The victim who is disabled was seen trying to fend off his assailant with his left arm because he has no use of his right arm due to his disability.
The minor then grabbed a pack of cigarettes from the victim's front shirt. Another minor was detained into custody for Obstruction of Government Operations and Resisting Arrest.
