FOUR teenage boys – one as young as 13 – have been arrested and charged over a string of alleged armed robberies at Seven Hills, in Sydney’s northwest.
The teens – aged 13, 14 and 17 – are accused of bashing an 18-year-old man at a railway station about 7pm last night before storming a fast food store and attacking a 26-year-old man about 9.30pm.
The group then allegedly robbed two men in their 20s at knifepoint at a nearby shopping centre.
