Trio on curfew after robbery

Three youths have appeared in court charged with an aggravated robbery at knifepoint.

The youths, aged 15 and 16, appeared before Judge Michael Turner in the Invercargill Youth Court yesterday jointly charged with aggravated robbery and stealing balaclavas on May 31.

They were all remanded on bail with a 24-hour curfew.

One 15-year-old was remanded to June 12 while the other was remanded to June 26. The 16-year-old, who also faces unrelated charges, was remanded to Tuesday.

Police had carried out searches yesterday in relation to the robbery of three Southern Institute of Technology students, which resulted in the three arrests.
