Three boys on bail have been charged following a terrifying bus attack, where they allegedly robbed a 17-year-old boy at knifepoint.
The alleged incident occurred at about 1.15pm on Sunday 15 November, while the victim was travelling on a bus on Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road.
According to a Victoria Police spokeswoman, a group of six to seven youths boarded the bus at the Narre Warren railway station on Webb Street.
It’s alleged three members of the group approached the 17-year-old boy and began making demands for his phone before threatening him with a knife.
The thugs reportedly stole the victim’s phone and air pods, police say.
Three 16-year-old boys were arrested on Tuesday morning, 17 November, after detectives from the Southern Metro Crime Team executed two search warrants in Cranbourne North.
The three boys, all from Cranbourne North, were arrested during the warrants and taken into custody to be interviewed.
The trio, who were all on bail at the time, were charged with a string of offences including armed robbery, theft and possessing a controlled weapon.
One of the thugs was also said to have been carrying cannabis at the time of the alleged offence.
All three are set to face a children’s court.
