Girl, 11, allegedly stabbed by other children in Melbourne armed robbery



An 11-year-old girl is in hospital after she was allegedly stabbed during an armed robbery carried out by other children at a Melbourne shopping centre.

The girl was in Gallery Lane at Bayside Centre in Frankston about 12.15am on Thursday when she was allegedly approached by a 14-year-old boy, a 12-year-old girl and an 11-year-old girl.

Police said the group demanded the girl hand over her phone and other possessions before stabbing her several times with a sharp object.

Transit police officers responded to the incident and arrested the children.

The Port Melbourne girl was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police have since charged a 14-year-old Frankston boy and a 12-year-old Highett girl with armed robbery and assault.

The pair have been bailed to appear at a children's court at a later date.

An 11-year-old Carlton girl was released pending summons.
