Two teenage girls have been arrested following a string of offences in Glenmore Park yesterday.
Just before 4am on Thursday, two girls entered a closed fast food restaurant on the Glenmore Parkway and allegedly stole cash from a charity container on the counter.
About 3pm, the girls returned to the same fast food restaurant and police were notified after they were recognised by staff.
“The girls then attempted to flee in a Holden Captiva before allegedly deliberately reversing into a Mazda in the car park, occupied by a female driver and two children,” a Police spokesperson said.
“The Holden has reversed into the Mazda a second time, hitting a male staff member who was standing nearby.
“He then opened the driver’s door to remove the keys from the vehicle and teens fled on foot before being detained by witnesses nearby.”
There were no reports of injuries.
On arrival, officers from Nepean Police Area Command arrested the two girls, aged 15 and 14.
The older girl was charged with ‘not give particulars to other driver’, ‘driver never licensed’, ‘negligent driving (no death or grievous bodily harm)’, ‘use offensive weapon to prevent lawful detention’, ‘larceny’ and ‘take and drive conveyance without consent of owner’.
She was refused bail to appear in a children’s court today.
The younger girl will be dealt with under the Young Offenders Act.
