Teens facing multiple criminal charges

IPSWICH detectives have charged two teenagers with multiple armed robberies on convenience stores and pizza delivery drivers.

An 18-year-old from Bundamba and a 17-year-old from Goodna, both male, have been charged with one count of armed robbery in company, attempted armed robbery in company and assault occasioning bodily harm.

Police allege that the pair entered a convenience store at North Station Rd, North Booval on Monday, threatening the attendant with golf clubs before fleeing the store.

Later that evening, the same two males allegedly raided a store on Gledson St, North Booval, again armed with golf clubs.

They are accused of assaulting two male employees while attempting to gain access to the cash register.
Police said the two teens fled the store with cigarettes.

The 18-year-old man has also been charged with five counts of robbery in company following a series of incidents between March 18 and March 26 in the Ipswich area.

It is alleged the man targeted pizza delivery drivers who were assaulted and robbed of cash and food.

Both men remain in custody and are due to appear at the Ipswich Magistrates Court on Thursday.
