Fourteen-year-boy charged with attempting to rob youngsters in Wisbech

A 14 year old boy facing three charges of attempting to rob young people in Wisbech has been remanded into secure accommodation by Fenland magistrates.

The boy appeared in court alongside 18-year-old Jamie Kellard, of Albert Court, Wisbech, who is charged with one offence of attempted robbery with the schoolboy.

It is alleged that all attempted robberies were carried out between September 27 and 29; and the three victims were under the age of 18.

Both defendants were sent for trial at Cambridge Crown Court, with a preliminary hearing due to take place on October 11. Kellard was given conditional bail.
