Share Canberra's trusted news:

A 17-year-old Canberra youth will face the ACT Children’s Court today charged with the murder and aggravated robbery of a 27-year-old man in Braddon on Thursday.

The young man, from Canberra’s north, was taken into custody late on Saturday night  after ACT Policing had negotiated his surrender.

Police had executed a search warrant on a Turner residence during the early hours of Saturday morning. During this lengthy search, evidence was located which will form part of the brief of evidence.

A machete and a baseball bat were located which police will allege were the weapons used in the attack.

Police are still searching for a second person in relation to the murder.


Members of the public who have not yet spoken to police and who may be able to provide information which could assist the investigation are urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website Information can be provided anonymously.
