A second teenager has been charged following an alleged home invasion where three people were injured in their home at Maroubra last month, NSW Police say.
Just before 3am on Thursday 26 May 2016, police were called to an address in Morris Place following reports of a disturbance.
Police attended and spoke to the occupants, who stated they were allegedly threatened by two males who forced entry to the home.
NSW Ambulance Paramedics treated a 46-year-old man and two teenagers – aged 15 and 16 – for injuries allegedly sustained during the incident.
Three other people, who were in the house at the time, were also assessed by NSW Ambulance Paramedics, but did not require further medical treatment.
Officers attached to Eastern Beaches Local Area Command established a crime scene and commenced investigations.
Following inquiries, just before 3pm yesterday, detectives attended Penrith Police Station where they arrested a 17-year-old teenager.
He was charged with break, enter and commit serious indictable offence (wounding) in circumstances of special aggravation.
The teenager was refused bail to appear before a children’s court on Friday 24 June 2016.
Another 17-year-old teenager was arrested and charged with the same offence on Monday 30 May 2016.
He has since appeared before a children’s court where he is due to re-appear at a later date.
Investigations are continuing.
