Newsagency robbed

A 13 year old boy has been charged following an armed robbery on the NSW Central Coast.

Police allege a male youth armed with a knife entered a newsagency in Anita Avenue, Lake Munmorah and threatened a female employee about 11.25am (AEDT) on Sunday.

The youth, who had his faced covered, fled the store after he was handed cash and cigarettes.

A 13 year old boy attended the Toukley Police Station with his grandparents about 2.30pm and was arrested.

Officers attended the boy’s home address with the family and allegedly recovered an amount of cash and cigarettes.

He was later charged with robbery while armed with an offensive weapon and granted conditional bail to appear in Wyong Children’s Court on Tuesday.
