Kalgoorlie Detectives have charged a 17 year old male teenager as a result of their investigation into an incident on Monday 14 May 2018, in which a German tourist was robbed by two armed persons.

Around 10:45pm, the 50 year old victim was loading his car and custom made trailer in the car park of a recreational centre in Johnston Street Somerville.

It is alleged two men, one armed with a knife and metal object, assaulted him before stealing his 4WD vehicle and trailer.  

The 17 year old appeared in Kalgoorlie Children’s Court this morning charged with aggravated armed robbery, stealing a vehicle and possessing cannabis.


Mr Stokes did not apply for bail and the boy has been remanded in custody until he will next appear in Kalgoorlie Children’s Court on June 5.

The vehicle and camper trailer have since been recovered. The vehicle was damaged and most of the property from the trailer has been removed.

Inquiries are continuing.
