Boy, 15, charged over threatening two woman, 70 with knife

A young boy has been arrested following a terrifying rampage where he threatened a number of women with a knife. 

The 15-year-old boy was allegedly armed with a knife as he threatened a 47-year-old woman and demanded keys to a car in Moruya, four hours south of Sydney.

NSW Police said the woman was able to get the attention of a passing car who was able to stop and intervene, before the boy fled empty handed.

A short time after, the boy allegedly approached an elderly woman and man, aged 73 and 72, and demanded keys to a car. 

Police say the 15-year-old allegedly left empty handed before he approached a 70-year-old woman with a knife at a supermarket, demanding car keys. 

The boy fled the scene in a Mitsubishi Colt, driving 44 minutes north of Moruya. 

NSW Police attempted to pull the car over at several locations including in Moruya and Batesman Bay as they began a pursuit. 

‘Road spikes were deployed and the car eventually stopped on the Princes Highway at Termeil,’ a police statement said. 

The boy tried to flee the scene and crashed into a marked police car before being arrested Saturday afternoon.
