A 17-year-old male teenager will face the ACT Children’s Court today after being arrested while committing an aggravated burglary in Ngunnawal yesterday (Wednesday, 29 March) afternoon.

Around 4:45pm police were called to a house in Ngunnawal after a report of a suspicious car and two men were seen entering a house. The car had previously been reported stolen and had come to police attention for failing to stop upon police direction and driving in a reckless manner.

Shortly after police arrived at the house the officers located and arrested the 17-year-old teenager inside the garage.

The second man fled the house by jumping through a glass window and as a result sustained injuries. He was arrested a short distance away and conveyed to The Canberra Hospital for treatment.

The 17-year-old teenager has been charged with four counts of aggravated burglary, two counts of ride/drive in a stolen motor vehicle, two counts of minor theft, four counts of property damage, resist arrest, unlawful possession, possess drug of dependence, failure to appear in court and had a first instance warrant for his arrest.

The 22-year-old man will face the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date and will be charged with two counts of aggravated burglary, two counts of ride/drive in a stolen motor vehicle, theft, property damage, resist arrest and possess drug of dependence.
