Teen accused of handbag snatch

A teenager accused of snatching a woman’s handbag as she made her way to the bank had been charged with burglary just days before, a court heard.

Emmett Deehan, (18), of Benvarden Avenue, Londonderry, yesterday faced one charge of robbery relating to an incident on March 18 on Clooney Terrace.

The court heard Deehan snatched the bag as the woman was going to make a lodgement for her employer.

The judge refused the teenager bail on the grounds he might reoffend.
