A Darwin man will face court charged with a string of offences including using an edged weapon after he allegedly caused $10,000 worth of damages to a business in Ludmilla.
Northern Territory Police summonsed a 19-year-old male on Friday following a six-week search.
Police say the man allegedly destroyed thousands of dollars worth of property, and threatened a staff worker at the Ludmilla business on August 15 at around 10:50 pm.
In a statement, Police say the man entered the business, removed a beverage from a fridge, and threw it at an employee, but did not provide any further details on the moments leading up to the assault.
NT Police media manager Rob Cross said the Ludmilla employee was not injured during the vandalism spree.
“The male then allegedly removed an edged weapon from his pants and hit glass windows and doors, causing approximately $10,000 worth of damage,” Mr Cross said.
Mr Cross said police identified the man using “forensic technology”.
The male will face a judge at Darwin Local Court charged with assault, using a “controlled weapon”, stealing and damage to property.
In Mr Cross’ brief statement, he said the man will appear before Darwin Local Court “at a later date”.
