Man commits aggravated robbery and breaches good behaviour orders

Charged with multiple offences

An 18-year-old man has been arrested after police allege he committed an aggravated robbery, trespassed on a Kaleen residence, and breached numerous good behaviour orders.  

About 9.00pm on Monday, 15 August 2022, two men entered a liquor store in Wanniassa, with one brandishing a large knife and demanding cash and alcohol.   

The men, who were wearing face coverings, went behind the counter, made personal threats to the shopkeeper and took cash directly from the register. The men also allegedly took 17 packs of cigarettes and 11 bottles of alcohol.   

The two men fled on foot, taking more than $1600 worth of goods with them.   

About 11.00pm on 17 August 2022, a resident in Kaleen reported to police that there was an armed duo trespassing on his premises which he had successfully deterred.   

Following extensive investigations, ACT Policing officers executed a search warrant at the 18-year-old’s residence in Banks yesterday (Wednesday, 7 September 2022) where he was subsequently arrested.   

He is set to face the ACT Magistrates Court today (Thursday, 8 September 2022) charged with aggravated robbery, going equipped with an offensive weapon for theft, unlawful trespass on premises, and breach of good behaviour obligations.    

The man had only been released from custody on 8 August 2022 and was on 10 sets of good behaviour orders when these offences were allegedly committed.
