Teen boys charged for rob­bing girl

Joondalup Times - - NEWS -

TWO teenaged boys from Beech­boro have been charged with rob­bing a 16-year-old girl of her gold chain in Gir­rawheen last month.

Po­lice said the boys rode a mo­tor­cy­cle next to the girl as she walked along Tem­ple­ton Cres­cent and threat­ened to punch her if she did not give them the chain.

One of the boys, aged 15, got off the mo­tor­bike and said “give me that chain or I’m go­ing to punch you”. He then un­did the clasp of the chain. He was de­tained in Koon­doola soon af­ter.

Po­lice found the gold chain and other items be­lieved to be stolen, in­clud­ing an iPod and a wal­let con­tain­ing $200.

He was charged with ag­gra­vated rob­bery.

The other boy, a 16year-old who was al­legedly rid­ing the mo­tor­cy­cle, was also charged with ag­gra­vated rob­bery.
