Four teenagers charged with robbery on train, NSW

Four teenagers will face court charged with robbery on a city-bound train yesterday.

About 11pm (Monday 17 February 2020), police were told five teenagers boarded a train from Mt Druitt Railway Station and allegedly approached a 19-year-old man.

They allegedly threatened the man and demanded he hand over a mobile phone and head phones. The man then disembarked at Doonside Railway Station and was not injured.

The five teenagers remained on the train and were later arrested by officers from the Public Transport Command and Sydney City Police Area Command at Central Railway Station.

They were taken to Day Street Police Station.

A 14-year-old boy from Bidwill was charged with robbery in company and refused bail to appear at a children’s court later today.

A 15-year-old boy from Lethbridge Park, a 15-year-old boy from Mt Druitt and a 13-year-old boy from Whalan were also charged with robbery in company. They were all granted strict conditional bail, to appear at a children’s court later next month. A fifth teenager, a 15-year-old from Whalan, was released without charge.
