Halton Regional Police have arrested five young people in connection with two robberies in Oakville back in May.
The first incident happened near Chisholm St. and Walker St., around 9 p.m. on May 28.
The victims say they were approached by five people, one of them holding a knife, and told to turn over their cell phones and bags. The victims refused and left the area. They say a rock was thrown at their car causing minor damage as they left.
Later that same day, police responded to a robbery call at the Glen Abbey Library. This victim reported being confronted by several people who stole a bag with soccer shoes and a soccer ball inside. The victim obtained a partial licence plate of the suspect vehicle.
Police were able to identify five suspects and laid charges this week.
An 18-year-old woman, who was a minor at the time of the offences, has been charged with two counts of robbery and mischief under $5,000.
Two males and one female, all underage, have been charged with two counts of robbery.
Another male youth has been charged with two counts of robbery and possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose.
