Clayton, MO (KSDK) - A teen from Town and Country was found guilty by Judge David Vincent during a bench trial this week on felony charges brought by prosecutors in 2012.
18 year old Demetrie Javon Thomas who lived in the 14,000 block of Willowbend Park was convicted of attempted robbery and attempted forcible sodomy. The crimes occurred on May 16, 2012.
Thomas was identified by the female victim after Town and Country Police received a 911 call about Thomas assaulting the victim in the same block where Thomas lived.
Police arrived and saw the injured woman on the sidewalk and Thomas fleeing the scene. Officers gave chase and took Thomas into custody the next day.
Thomas waived his right to a jury trial. He's facing a sentencing hearing in November.
