Robbed at knifepoint


A BOY, 14, was robbed at knifepoint by two 16-year-old boys outside the cinema complex in Frankston’s Wells Street on Sunday 22 July.

The victim was approached by the two teens who demanded cash before allegedly kicking the 14-year-old in the head.

After one of the 16-year-olds brought out a knife the victim handed over $20 in cash.

Police arrested two teens, one from Frankston and the other from Noble Park, the next day.

The Frankston youth was allegedly involved in a forced entry into a shed at the rear of a Frankston North home late on the Sunday night. A 23-year-old victim was assaulted, punched and a TV and Playstation were stolen.

A second as yet unidentified youth took part in the Frankston North assault and robbery.

The Noble Park teen from the earlier incident was charged with armed robbery and bailed to appear at a children’s court.

The Frankston youth was remanded in custody and charged with armed robbery, home invasion and aggravated burglary.

He also will appear at a children’s court at a later date.
