A teen who breached bail after allegedly threatening a service station employee with “an edged weapon” while demanding money and stealing a beverage has been arrested and charged, NT Police said.
On Friday, at around 9:40pm, the 16-year-old female offender entered the unnamed service station with others, police said.
She then threatened the staff with an unknown edged weapon and demanded cash.
It’s unclear if the teen or her friends made off with any cash.
Police said the teenager also stole “a soft drink” from the store before fleeing the location.
Police said the female offender was caught as she ran from the scene on Friday.
Officers did not explain if they’re looking for other youths involved in the incident.
Strike Force Trident detectives have charged her with aggravated robbery and serious breach of bail.
She is scheduled to appear in court today.
On Monday last week, police released an image of a man captured in a CCTV in an undisclosed supermarket in Smith Street where he also threatened a staff with an edged weapon during a grog robbery.
