THREE teenagers were arrested after an alleged armed robbery and an attempted armed robbery at two Frankston line train stations last week.
Police allege that a group of teenagers attempted to rob a woman at Southland Station at around 8am on 8 August. They then took a train from Cheltenham to Mentone, where they allegedly attempted to rob a 14-year-old boy by using a knife.
None of the victims were physically injured during the alleged robbery attempts.
The group of teenagers fled the scene and were arrested near Mentone, police say.
In a statement, police said that one of the arrested boys was exonerated and another was cautioned.
“A 13-year-old Ringwood boy has been cautioned and a 14-year-old Dandenong boy is expected to be charged on summons with armed robbery and attempted robbery at a later date. A 17-year-old Elwood boy has been exonerated and released pending further enquiries,” a Victoria Police statement read.
