15-Year-Old Charged As An Adult
A 15-year-old Evans youth was arrested and charged as an adult following a daytime burglary on Tuesday, May 12th. He was accused of ransacking a neighbor's home while armed with a baseball bat and some duct tape when the resident returned home and surprised him.
The youth was wearing a pillow case over his head with eye and mouth holes when he broke into a house at 910 Johnson St. at approximately 1 p.m.
While Lt. Detective DeJohn and Detective Eppolito were investigating the incident, a 15-year-old neighborhood youth went to the house to ask whether the victim was all right. Detective DeJohn, after questioning him and determining that his shoe impressions matched that at the scene, arrested the boy on a first-degree burglary charge.
The youth was sent to the East Ferry Street Youth Detention Center in Buffalo.
