Boy threat­ens staff with knife

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

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.
