Police arrested on Tuesday late afternoon a male teenager who along with a male juvenile allegedly beat up and robbed a woman last May 28 at her residence in Chalan Kanoa.
Joshua D. Limes, 19, was arrested on charges of robbery, conspiracy, aggravated assault and battery, assault and battery, and disturbing the peace.
The victim, a Chinese woman, had some red marks on the neck and face, and her pants were dirty on the knee portion when a police officer responded to the scene.
Limes was set for a bail hearing yesterday afternoon before Superior Court Associate Judge Joseph N. Camacho.
A $16,250 cash bail was initially imposed for the defendant's temporary release.
Detective Israel De Leon stated in his report that, on May 28, 2012 at 7:28pm, a police officer was dispatched to a store in Chalan Kanoa for a robbery incident.
When the officer arrived at the store, the victim approached and stated that someone had taken her bag.
The victim told the officer that when she got off from work at Shany Laundry in Chalan Kanoa at 7:10pm, she walked home.
After three minutes she reached her house. When she opened the house's gate and took a step inside, one suspect grabbed her and started choking her.
The victim yelled for help, but was not loud enough for someone to hear. One suspect then grabbed her purse.
The victim identified the male juvenile who allegedly choked her.
The officer conducted his interview with some persons at Shany Laundry, leading to the arrest of the juvenile who is residing just across the establishment.
The victim identified the juvenile, prompting the officer to detain him at the Juvenile Detention Facility in Kagman.
Detective De Leon, however, stated that on Sept. 5, 2012, the juvenile in the presence of his lawyer provided a statement to him.
The juvenile identified Limes as his companion who actually choked and punched the victim.
The juvenile confessed they split the money taken from the victim and that he got his share of $3,000.
The juvenile claimed that Limes then burned the purse.
