Youths charged following aggravated robbery overnight

Two teenage boys are due to face the ACT Children’s Court today after an aggravated robbery at a store in Conder overnight.

Shortly before 10pm yesterday (Friday, 8 March 2024), two assailants armed with knives entered a pizza shop and demanded money from the staff.

The staff complied with the demands and the assailants fled the scene in a silver Nissan Qashqai.

Police later observed the vehicle in Bonython, which was reported as stolen several days earlier. Officers conducted a search of a nearby home, locating several items of interest including clothing matching the CCTV footage from the store and two bags bearing the store’s logo.

Officers arrested a 16-year-old boy who lived at the home and after further reviewing the CCTV footage, arrested a 17-year-old boy who was also at the Bonython residence that evening.

Police will allege the two attended the store and used weapons to threaten staff, making off with several hundred dollars in cash.

Both have been charged with joint commission of an aggravated robbery and possessing an offensive weapon with intent.
