JOONDALUP

Wanneroo Times - - Street Watch -

PO­LICE have charged a boy and are search­ing for up to 14 oth­ers ac­cused of at­tack­ing and rob­bing mul­ti­ple peo­ple in sep­a­rate in­ci­dents on one night in Joondalup late last month. The al­leged at­tack­ers tar­geted two teenage boys, aged 13 and 14, as they walked to the en­trance of a Joondalup Drive takeaway out­let about 6.30pm on Septem­ber 24. One of the boys was al­legedly thrown to the ground and kicked be­fore hav­ing his shoes and phone stolen. A se­cond in­ci­dent hap­pened about an hour later at a Dwyer Turn takeaway out­let. A 17-year-old boy and 23-year-old woman were sit­ting on a kerb at the front of the store when a group of males sur­rounded them. The boy was struck to the head with a bot­tle and punched. Po­lice al­lege the woman had her purse stolen. The male vic­tim needed stitches for a head wound. Of­fi­cers charged a 16-year-old boy with two counts of ag­gra­vated armed rob­bery in re­la­tion to the first in­ci­dent. He is due to ap­pear in Joondalup Chil­dren’s

Court on Oc­to­ber 17. Any­one who recog­nises the males pic­tured is urged to con­tact Crime Stop­pers.
