Youth charged after alleged robbery and reported car jacking attempt


A spate of alleged robberies across Greater Hobart continues, following an incident with another teenager.

Police will allege a youth approached staff at Woolworths in Hobart’s CBD on Friday afternoon and demanded money while holding a Stanley knife.

The alleged suspect ran from the store when security approached him and no one was injured.

It's alleged the same teenager later entered the Touch of Asia store in Sandy Bay, where he reportedly stole a quantity of cash from the till while again brandishing the knife.

Tasmania Police have confirmed the youth apprehended in relation to the Woolworths CBD and Sandy Bay incidents on Friday will also be proceeded against under the Youth Justice Act, in relation to the Attempted Car Jacking at Dodges Ferry on Friday.

It was reported that a youth, allegedly armed with a knife, approached a vehicle on Carlton Beach Road and attempted to steal the vehicle from the occupant.

The man was unable to start the vehicle and fled the area on foot.

Luckily, no one was injured during the incident.
