Machete threat


FOUR teenagers were threatened with a machete in a failed robbery in Naples St, Mornington, on Monday night last week.

The group was walking along Nunns Rd at about 10.15pm after buying take away when they noticed they were being followed.

Two youths approached in Naples St and demanded their mobiles and wallets – one raising a machete to his victim’s face, causing a scratch.

The victims refused to hand over any property and the offenders fled.

Anyone with information should call Detective Senior Constable Andrew Hodgson, of Somerville police complex, 5978 1300 or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
