Youths charged in relation to robbery in Bedford

Two youths have been charged in relation to the robbery which occurred in Bedford early this morning.

Shortly after midnight, Halifax Regional Police responded to the 1400 block of Bedford Highway to a reported armed robbery.

Upon arrival, officers located four victims who reported they were approached by a group of young people consisting of three male youths and two female youths. After one of the male youths brandished a machete and demanded money, the group complied with the demand and the suspects then fled on foot.

Police contained the area and called in the K-9 Unit who successfully tracked and flushed the group from the woods. Officers recovered property stolen during the incident.

Based on the investigation, two youths have been charged. A 16-year-old male youth from Bedford was charged with robbery, threats and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and a 16-year-old male youth from Hammonds Plains was charged with mischief. Both were scheduled to appear in Halifax Youth Court today.
