Boy charged over a series of stun gun attacks on female drivers

A boy, aged 14, has been charged over a series of stun gun attacks on female drivers.

The teenager, who can’t be named for legal reasons, is accused of ‘shocking’ women with electrical devices during three attempted car-jackings in the space of four days.

It’s alleged the boy, from Sparkhill, attacked women in Balaclava Road and Colmore Road, both in Kings Heath on 6th and 9th February respectively.

And he’s accused of leaving another woman with minor burns following a failed car-jacking in Cambridge Road, Moseley, on 10th February when a stun gun was again used.

West Midlands Police detectives arrested the boy yesterday and have today charged him with conspiracy to commit robbery.

The conspiracy charge also includes an incident in Windermere Road, Moseley, on 10 February when two brothers on a break from school were stunned with a device during a robbery in which a mobile phone was stolen.

He has been remanded in police custody and is set to appear at Birmingham Magistrates Court tomorrow morning.

Two other people arrested in connection with the attacks – a 15-year-old boy from Sparkhill and a 21-year-old man from Kings Heath have been bailed with strict conditions while enquiries continue.
