A 15-year-old boy has been charged with harassing and intimidating school students at Caniaba public school yesterday afternoon.
Richmond LAC Inspector Doug Conners said police were notified of an alleged child approach at the Caniaba Rd school at about 2.30pm Wednesday.
Richmond LAC officers attended and arrested the teenager who has since been interviewed and charged with harassing and intimidating school students at a school.
A number of other occupants in a car were questioned by police, however no further arrests were made.
The teenager has been granted conditional bail to appear at Casino Children’s Court on October 7.
Inspector Conners said police would like to remind the community that it is an offence to approach school students within the confines of a school and to intimidate them.
‘These incidents are viewed very seriously by police and by the broader community,” he said.
‘If people have no business at or near school, they should not be approaching under any circumstance.’
