Two young people have been arrested after allegedly stealing Halloween costumes and then assaulting a shop assistant who tried to stop them.

Police allege that on October 31 two juveniles entered a store on Walker Street, Casino, picked up four Halloween costumes and tried to leave without paying.

They say a staff member tried to stop them but was pushed to the ground as the juveniles ran past her.

Police were called and apprehended the juveniles a short distance away. They were placed under arrest and taken to Casino Police Station.

They say the offences will be dealt with under the Young Offenders Act at a later date.
