Two teenage sisters who are being tried as adults for the stabbing of a teenage boy in Lehigh Acres were no-shows in court Monday.

During the scheduled court date, the judge called their names, but no one responded.

At both 16 and 17 years old, the sisters have been charged with aggravated battery and robbery charges, after a teenage boy reported being stabbed in the abdomen and robbed of his iPhone to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.

The victim’s mother was in court for a bond hearing on Friday and requested the judge issue a restraining order out of fear for her son.

The judge granted a temporary no contact order while telling the victim’s mother she could seek the restraining order by taking the civil route.

One of the sisters is out on bond, and the other sister has a court appearance scheduled for Oct. 23 at 8:30 a.m.
