Call for 17-year-old Victorian boy accused of stabbing CBD in Adelaide to face trial as an adult

An Adelaide court has heard prosecutors want a teenager charged with murdering a man in an alleged gang fight who was tried as an adult.

The 17-year-old Victorian, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, has been charged with the murder of Ngor Bol (pictured) last month.

The 25-year-old Victorian man was found with multiple stab wounds on North Terrace, in Adelaide’s CBD, while police at the time claimed it was the result of ongoing fighting between two youth gangs from Adelaide’s northern suburbs.

The accused killer faced the Adelaide Youth Court today, where the prosecutor said the director of public prosecutors wanted to move the case from the juvenile court to the Adelaide Magistrates Court.

Under the Young Offenders Act, a young person charged with a major charge or someone who poses a risk to community safety may be treated as an adult.

The case will go to court next month.

A second Victorian man was charged Monday with murder over Bol’s death.

Thocrial Agoth, 21, appeared before the Adelaide Magistrates Court the same day.

Mr Agoth remains in custody until his next hearing in December.

He and the 17-year-old boy were arrested at Adelaide Airport before they could fly back to Melbourne.

Police have arrested a total of 17 people in connection with the incident.
