Transient robberies and batteries reported

DJJ Facility
Historic City News has learned in an initial report from Sgt. Charles Mulligan this morning that two 17 year old juveniles are being booked at The Department of Juvenile Justice Facility adjacent to the county jail on Lewis Speedway.

The arrests are in connection with this morning’s aggravated battery and attempted robbery with a weapon against possible transients in an incident that reportedly occurred near SR 312; west of CBL Drive.

Mulligan reported that the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office is looking for another person of interest in this case.

Two additional persons we interviewed from the scene this morning. Those subjects have been classified as witnesses at this time, however, the investigation into these crimes is continuing.
