A 17-year-old Canberra youth will face the ACT Childrens Court today (Monday, August 8. ) charged with the murder and aggravated robbery of a 27-year-old man in Braddon on Thursday (August 4).
The young man, from Canberra’s north, was taken into custody late on Saturday night (August 6) after ACT Policing had negotiated his surrender.
Police had executed a search warrant on a Turner residence during the early hours of Saturday morning. During this lengthy search, evidence was located which will form part of the brief of evidence.
A machete and a baseball bat were located which police will allege were the weapons used in the attack.
Police are still searching for a second person in relation to the murder.
