PICTOU – An 18-year-old Pictou boy has pleaded guilty to charges related to a home invasion last month.
The boy, who cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act because of his age at the time, pleaded guilty Wednesday to a charge of uttering threats, break and enter with intent, two counts of assault, one count of disguise with intent, breach of probation and breach of an undertaking.
He was charged on Jan. 13 after police received a call of a home invasion in the Town of Pictou that occurred the night before. Three men were accused of breaking into a home and assaulting two 20-year-old men. One of the victims was injured, but he didn’t require medical attention.
The youth will under go a psychological assessment before he is sentenced on March 20. On this date, he will also be sentenced for his role in a robbery at the East End Grocery that took place last year in Pictou.
Two 17-year-olds also charged in the home invasion will return to court next week to enter pleas.
