A MANDURAH juvenile who ‘flipped the bird’ at police while walking along Anstruther Road last week was charged with an aggravated robbery offence after police found he was wanted for questioning.

The young boy was with his friend and pulled his finger up as he saw police drive by.

Police turned around, ran the juvenile offender’s name and found he was wanted for questioning for a serious offence.

He was brought back to Mandurah Police Station and charged with aggravated robbery.

“You probably shouldn’t be drawing attention to yourself if you’re wanted for questioning,” a police spokeswoman said.
