Teen tasered after smashing cars in Belconnen

Share Canberra's trusted news:

A TEENAGER’S baseball bat rampage, which saw him damaging vehicles and a restaurant shop front in Belconnen, came to an end when police “tasered” him last night (October 21). 

The 17-year-old allegedly used the silver bat between 6.30pm and 9pm to damage vehicles on Chandler Street before smashing a restaurant window on Emu Bank.

Police were called to the scene where they chased the teenager before using a “taser gun” on him, during his arrest near John Knight Memorial Park.

He’s been charged with five counts of property damage and one count of possession of a thing with intent to do damage, and will face charges at the ACT Children’s Court.
