POLICE have charged a second 16-year-old boy in relation to an aggravated robbery in Joondalup on Sunday September 24.

About 6.30pm two boys were walking to the entrance of a take away food store on Joondalup Drive when they were assaulted and robbed by a group of 10-15 youths.

During the incident, one of the boys was thrown to the ground where he was kicked before having his shoes and mobile phone stolen.

Police charged one 16-year-old boy with aggravated robbery over the incident last week, and have laid another charge of aggravated robbery on another 16-year-old today.

Both boys will appear in Joondalup Children’s Court on October 17.

A second incident occurred outside a take away food store on Dwyer Turn, Joondalup between 7.15 and 7:30pm.

A 17-year-old male and 23-year-old female were sitting on the kerb outside when they were surrounded by a group of males.

The male victim was pushed and punched before being struck to the head with a glass bottle.

The female victim had her purse stolen.

Detectives are hoping members of the public can help identify the others involved.
