Girl (15) faces robbery charge

A 15-YEAR-OLD girl has appeared in court accused of attempted robbery of a woman in Dublin city centre.

The girl made no reply after she was charged with the attempted robbery of the 34-year-old at Chatham Row, Dublin 2, on the night of October 12 last.

Dublin Children's Court heard the incident involved "physical intimidation" but no force was used. It would be alleged that the girl and another female went up the woman and "demanded money and her phone".

Judge Bryan Smyth remanded the girl, who was accompanied by her mother, on bail to appear again in three weeks when she is to enter a plea.
