Couple in knife scare
A TEENAGER is accused of breaking into a Dubbo home in the middle of the night and threatening a 90-year-old man and his 87-year-old wife with a knife.
Police said the youth threatened the elderly couple in their home at 1.30am on Tuesday before fleeing with their wallets and cash.
The 17-year-old was arrested at a home around the corner from the crime scene on Tuesday afternoon.
He was refused police bail and appeared before a children’s court yesterday, and charged over the attack with aggravated break and enter and robbery while armed.
