Violent crimes: Teen accused of pistol whipping donut shop worker

At about 3 a.m. on May 18, two juveniles allegedly entered a donut shop in Colorado Springs. They would ultimately be accused of committing violent crimes. Employees of the store claim the two teenagers ordered them to put their hands up, get down on the ground and hand over the cash. They allege that one of the pair became impatient when the cash register was not opened quick enough, and he purportedly struck the employee over the head with his firearm. The gun went off, but no one was hit.

It appears the staff could not open the cash register, and they say the youths left the donut shop empty-handed. Police officers responded and had to enter the store through a locked, broken glass door because they were under the impression that the suspects were still inside. They reported that three of the officers suffered minor injuries, and one of them along with an employee received medical treatment at the hospital.

A search for the culprits was launched, but it was only after another incident happened on May 23 and Colorado Springs police arrested two teenage males -- a 15-year-old and a 16-year-old -- that they became suspicious. After obtaining a search warrant, officers claim to have found items that linked the two youths to the donut shop robbery five days earlier. This ultimately led to their recent arrest for the alleged armed robbery.

If teenagers are convicted of violent crimes, it could have severe consequences. An experienced criminal defense attorney will be the most suitable person to handle such cases. A lawyer can examine the charges and the evidence before devising a defense strategy with the best possible outcome as the goal. Because of the young ages of the defendants, it remains to be seen if the teens will be tried as adults or adjudicated through the Colorado juvenile justice system.
