Three teens arrested after Kippax aggravated robbery


ACT Policing arrested three boys, two aged 14 and one aged 13, on Saturday (24 September 2022) less than an hour after they allegedly committed an aggravated robbery in Holt.

About 3pm, a 12-year-old boy was allegedly threatened before having his mobile phone and other items stolen from him by three people at the Kippax Shopping Centre in Holt.

A passer-by reported the incident to police and when officers from Belconnen Station attended, the passer-by and other members of the public supplied photos of the alleged offenders and told police they had boarded a bus to Civic.

About 3.49pm police intercepted the bus on Barry Drive, Turner, and arrested the three young people. They were later granted bail and are scheduled to appear in the ACT Children’s Court on Monday, 26 September 2022. Each will be charged with one count of aggravated robbery in company.

ACT Policing would like to thank the members of the community who supplied information leading to the quick arrests of the accused.
