A Liverpool schoolboy described as a "model pupil" is in court to be sentenced for armed robbery. The 15-year-old, whose identity is protected by the courts because of his age, held up a Barclays Bank in Anfield on Friday 20th September 2013.
He escaped with £2,200.
He was turned in to police when his mother found an imitation firearm and the stash of cash, stained with dye, in his bedroom. The boy pleaded guilty to two counts of robbery and one count of possessing an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence at an earlier hearing.
