A man’s been charged over several alleged attempted robberies in Edgeworth last night.
It’s understood the man entered a pizza store on Main Road around 7:45pm where he demanded staff open the register.
When they refused, he reportedly made the same demand of staff at a store in a nearby shopping centre.
The man allegedly tried stealing a chained charity tin but left the scene empty handed, before demanding the staff at a neighbouring chicken shop open their register.
He fled the scene and then demanded cigarettes from staff of a nearby service station but was again refused.
Patrolling police arrested the 18-year-old shortly afterwards and charged him with three counts offences.
He’s been refused bail and will front Toronto Local Court today.
