(CNS): A 17-year-old-boy from George Town was expected in court today, Friday, to face charges of attempted robbery and possession of an unlicensed firearm in connection with an armed hold-up at the Captain’s Bakery fast-food restaurant on West Bay Road. The teenager was arrested shortly after the incident on Tuesday day night at around 9pm. He is accused of pistol whipping a customer before fleeing from the scene.

If convicted, the teenager is now looking at a mandatory minimum sentence of ten years after trial.
