Five teenagers aged 13 to 17, and a 31-year-old woman have been arrested and charged after allegedly stealing food from an Adelaide CBD servo.

Key points:

  • Police allege two members of the group also assaulted a cyclist
  • The victim received minor injuries and was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital
  • The woman and the five children were arrested at an Adelaide train station

According to police, the group entered the West Terrace store just before 9:00pm last night before stealing two baskets of food.

Police allege they left the store and approached a woman riding her bicycle along Glover Avenue.

Police said two members of the group pushed the woman off her bike and stole her backpack.

The victim was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital with minor injuries.

Police said the group fled the scene and got on a train at Wayville, where they were met by police at Woodlands Park Railway Station.

The children and the woman were arrested.

The cyclist’s backpack was later found on a nearby oval.

A 13-year-old girl from Christie Downs and a 16-year-old boy from Huntfield Heights were charged with aggravated robbery and theft.

They were granted bail and will appear in the Adelaide Youth Court next month.

Another 13-year-old from Christie Downs, a 16-year-old girl from Morphett Vale and a 17-year-old boy from Meadows were charged with theft, and will also appear in the youth court.

The 31-year-old woman was also charged with theft and will appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court in June.
