Teen on suspended sentence and GBO charged over aggravated burglary

A 17-year-old boy serving a suspended sentence for grievous bodily harm, as well as a good behaviour order for assaulting a police officer has allegedly committed an aggravated burglary in Rivett.   

About 7pm on Sunday (11 September 2022) CCTV captured the teen using a rock to break into the front glass door of a Rivett residence before allegedly making his way to a bedroom and ransacking the room.   

A woman in the residence approached the bedroom where she was allegedly assaulted as she tried to remove the teen from her home before he stole some clothing, kicked her vehicle and threatened to stab her before leaving the location.   

The teen is set to appear in the ACT Children’s Court today and has been charged with burglary, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, minor theft, and two counts damage property not exceeding $5000.  

ACT Policing will oppose bail.
