Teens spend night in lockup over alleged crime spree

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.


Police were called and arrested the teenagers nearby.

They were all taken to Blacktown Police Station where they were each charged with a long list of offences, including larceny, armed robbery, and common assault.

All four spent the night in lockup and were due to front a children’s court today.
