Teens charged after alleged knifepoint robbery

Two teenage boys have been charged with 14 offences after they allegedly robbed a man at knifepoint in Brisbane's south last week.

Around 6.30pm on May 23, a 29-year-old man was reversing his car out of a carpark in a Sunnybank Hills shopping centre on Beenleigh St when a boy opened the front passenger door and got inside the car, demanding money.

The boy demanded the man to also give him the keys to the car, however when the man refused, the teenager held a knife to the man's throat, police allege.

The 13-year-old boy has been charged with possession of a knife in a public place, armed robbery, attempted robbery, enter premises, unlawful entry of a vehicle and possess tainted property.
