Transit police have charged a 16-year-old boy after a number of needles were allegedly found in the seat of a Watergardens line train on Tuesday, Victoria Police say.

The incident occurred on a Melbourne-bound train just before 8am when a man felt a pin-prick and located a number of needles in the seat.

A Fawkner boy has been charged with intentionally cause injury, recklessly cause injury, assault, assault with weapon and commit indictable offence whilst on bail.

He is in custody and expected to appear at a children’s court at a later date.
