A 16-YEAR-OLD boy was arrested and charged with attempted robbery and recklessly causing injury after he allegedly attacked the same 14-year-old youth twice in two days.
In the first incident, the 14-year-old victim was walking along Lindrum Road, Frankston on 5 May when he was approached by the 16-year-old who had a knife and demanded cash.
He ignored him and walked on but the next day coincidentally met the older teen again on Wangarra Road, Frankston.
The 16-year-old was with a couple of mates and gave the 14-year-old, who was with another 14-year-old, an electric shock in the back from a Taser-like device when he refused to hand over $10.
The younger boy suffered a welt mark from the attack before the older boy ran off.
Frankston crime investigation unit detective Senior Constable Darren Paxton said the two boys were not known to each other.
Police later arrested the 16-year-old at a Frankston address and found knives and the electric shock device allegedly used in the second attempted robbery.
He was bailed to appear at a children’s court next month.
