Casey Crime Investigation Unit detectives have charged a teenager following an alleged assault and robbery in Narre Warren on 18 February.
Investigators have been told the victim, a 15-year-old boy, was walking towards a shopping centre on Overland Drive with a friend about 4pm when they were approached by a group of youths.
It’s alleged one of the youths assaulted the victim before stealing his mobile phone.
Detectives today executed a search warrant at an address in Hampton Park.
As a result, a 15-year-old boy was arrested.
He has since been charged with robbery and was bailed to appear at a children’s court at a later date.
