ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to two Southside robberies which occurred within an hour of each other last Monday (May 14) afternoon, which police believe are linked.
About 3.40pm a 15 year-old boy was riding home from school in Isabella Plains when he was stopped by three teenagers who threatened him and took his iPod.
Around 5pm the same afternoon three friends were at the Tuggeranong skate park when they saw three teenage boys take their bags.
When one of the friends challenged them one of the offenders allegedly assaulted him and took his BMX bike.
The offenders walked away in the direction of Athllon Drive.
The stolen BMX bike is a one of a kind ‘wethepeople’ brand and is champagne and black in colour. It is worth approximately $6,000.
The offenders are described as being between 12 and 17 years-old. Two of the teenagers were wearing black bumbags over their shoulders.
The first offender was riding a black BMX bike and wearing a black T-shirt.
The second offender had short black spiky hair, acne, earrings in both ears, a pierced nose and rings on his fingers. He was wearing a blue jacket with white stripes around the middle.
The third offender was wearing plain black jeans and a brown hooded jumper with the hood pulled up over his head.
Anyone who saw a group of teenagers matching this description in the Tuggeranong area at that time are asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the website at www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information may be provided anonymously.
