Two people have been arrested in relation to an aggravated robbery involving high school students in Clevedon last month.

The incident occurred along Clevedon Rd at 2.37pm on 16 March. No injuries were reported at the time.

Inspector Joe Hunter, Area Commander Counties Manukau South says Police executed two search warrants in Manurewa and Takanini this morning, resulting in the arrest of a 27-year-old female and a 15-year-old male.

Police have recovered a BB gun at one of the addresses.

Inspector Hunter says he hoped the arrests would provide reassurance to the community that those who offend would be held to account.

“This is a great example of Police’s ongoing commitment to ensuring those responsible for these types of crime will be brought to justice.”

The 15-year-old male is due to appear in the Manukau Youth Court next week, charged with aggravated robbery.

The 27-year-old female has been referred to an Iwi community panel.

The investigation remains ongoing and Police can’t rule out further charges or arrests being made.
