Eight people, including two 13-year-olds and five other teens, have been charged after a spate of armed robberies in Sydney’s CBD on Saturday morning.
“We’re alleging they followed three people after they left Maccas on George Street and chased one of them down to Town Hall Station and robbed them there,” a NSW Police spokeswoman said.
The first of the three robberies occurred at about 4am when a man was approached by a group, one of whom was allegedly armed with a knife.
A man from the group demanded his phone before hitting him over the head with a bottle.
The injured man was treated by paramedics at the scene before being transferred to St Vincent’s Hospital in a serious condition.
