Two teenage boys accused of being involved in a violent crime spree on Sunday will remain in custody for at least another week.
The boys, aged 15 and 17, were arrested by Kensington detectives yesterday at a Koondoola home.
They appeared in Perth Children’s Court this morning on a dozen charges each including aggravated burglary and robbery, stealing a motor vehicle, assault and stealing.
Marcus Langlois, representing both of the boys told Magistrate Timothy Schwass that the boys were in the care of the chief executive of the Department of Child Protection and Family Support and the agency “were not prepared to bail them”.
A caseworker with the department said they would need a week to consider their position on whether to sign the bail applications for both boys.
Their bail applications will be reheard next week on July 15 with their matters remanded until August 18, when their accused co-offenders will also reappear before the court.
The co-accused appeared in Perth Children’s Court on Monday over the incident and similar circumstances regarding their bail applications were also discussed.
