A CARRUM DOWNS teenager was one of four children charged over two armed robberies at fast food restaurants last week.
The alleged armed robberies took place in the early hours of 14 July. Police allege a group of seven people targeted a restaurant on Westernport Highway in Skye at around 2.25am, and a restaurant on Berwick-Cranbourne Road in Clyde North around 15 minutes later.
The group was allegedly armed with a knife, and stole cash from the restaurants. One injury was recorded – a staff member in Skye was left with facial injuries after an alleged assault.
Police have now made four arrests in relation to the alleged robberies. A 15-year-old Carrum Downs boy was charged with armed robbery, theft and theft of motor vehicle. A 15-year-old Springvale South boy, a 15 year-year-old Cranbourne East boy, and a 13-year-old Doveton boy were all charged with armed robbery, theft, theft of motor vehicle, and other offences.
