Boy threatens staff with knife
A BOY aged about 12 used a steak knife to threaten staff at Il Lido Restaurant at Cottesloe Beach about 3pm last Wednesday.
Senior Sergeant Carol Vernon said at least two ‘”distinct” threats were made by the boy against a staff member.
“The boy entered the cafe, picked up the knife and verbally threatened him,” Sgt Vernon said.
The boy threw down the knife after staff shouted at him to stop, before he and three companions, also aged around 12, ran east on Forrest Street and across adjacent Sea View Golf Course.
