Kids steal Halloween costumes, assault shop worker

TWO juveniles have been arrested after a shoplifting and assault incident.

Police allege that on October 31 two juveniles attended a store on Walker Street Casino, senior constable David Henderson said.

They picked up four Halloween costumes and tried to leave the store without paying.

A staff member tried to stop them but was pushed to the ground as the juveniles ran past her.

Police were called and apprehended the juveniles a short distance away.

They were placed under arrest and taken to Casino Police Station.

These offences will be dealt with under the Young Offenders Act at a later date.
