A 14-year-old boy accused of robbing a Fall River McDonald’s restaurant at gunpoint and pistol whipping the manager will face charges as an adult.
 
    Bristol District Attorney Sam Sutter said Friday that Joshua Burgos of Fall River was indicted on charges including armed robbery, assault and battery and firearms violations under the state’s youthful offender law. His case will be tried in open juvenile court under adult rules.  
 
    Police say the masked boy entered the restaurant at about 5:30 a.m. Wednesday brandishing a gun. He allegedly struck the manager in the face with the gun and ordered the manager to take him to the safe. Police said he placed money from the safe in a duffel bag and ran down the street, where officers arrested him.
 
    He is scheduled for a March 21 dangerousness hearing in Fall River.

Also, charges against a 15-year-old Attleboro boy accused of attacking his 63-year-old neighbor will be handled as an adult case.
 
    District Attorney Sutter says Brandon Bonin has been indicted on charges including home invasion, kidnapping and attempted murder under the state’s Youthful Offender law. The case will be heard in open juvenile court.
 
    Bonin is accused of breaking into his neighbor’s house March 6. Police said he kicked and stabbed her in the neck, tied her up and drove her to a pond where he pushed her into the water. Police said Bonin took her out of the water and drove to a different location, when she got control of the car and drove for help. She is recovering.   (Associated Press)
