A 14-year-old boy has been arrested by police in relation to the aggravated robbery of a Gull Service Station in Whakatane on Monday.
The robbery happened at the Gull Service Station on the corner of Domain Road and King Street, Whakatane. An offender carrying a weapon entered the service station at approximately 12.40am, says Detective Senior Sergeant Greg Standen.
The alleged offender threatened the forecourt attendant and robbed the service station of a yet to be determined amount of cash.
The teenager has been charged with aggravated robbery and will appear in Whakatane Youth Court today.
“Police would like to thank those members of the community who provided information which helped us quickly identify and locate the alleged offender,” says police.
