POLICE have charged a 22-year-old man after an alleged armed robbery on an ice cream van in Ocean Reef.
About 8.20pm last night, a 40-year-old parked an ice cream van on Transom Way.
It is alleged the 22-year-old man waited for the man to park, before threatening him with a can of pepper spray and stealing cash.
But he hit a rocky road when he attempted to leave the van – through the service window – and was restrained by the 40-year-old and another man until police arrived.
The 22-year-old is due to appear in Joondalup Magistrates Court today.
