Police have arrested and charged a teenager over the alleged robbery of a 17-year-old by four teens at Woy Woy yesterday.
Just before 4.30pm (Tuesday 2 February 2016), a 17-year-old boy was waiting at the bus terminus area of Woy Woy railway station when he was allegedly approached by four teenagers.
Two of the four teens allegedly punched the 17-year-old in the chest and face and forced him to hand over his wallet, before they all ran into the railway station and boarded a northbound train.
Shortly afterwards, the 17-year-old attended Woy Woy Police Station to report the incident to Brisbane Water police who commenced an investigation.
Following inquiries, just after 9pm (Tuesday 2 February 2016), officers attached to the Police Transport Command arrested a 15-year-old teen at Central Railway Station in connection with this incident.
He was taken to Surry Hills Police Station where he was charged with robbery in company.
The teen was refused bail to appear before a children’s court today (Wednesday 3 February 2016).
