12:42 pm on 15 April 2017

A 15-year-old boy will appear in Christchurch Youth Court today charged with the aggravated robbery of a dairy.

The boy had already been charged with another robbery and was on bail.

Two people entered the J-Mart Dairy in Ōpāwa on Thursday, armed with a tomahawk and a kitchen knife, and stole cash and cigarettes.

Police said they would oppose bail at today's hearing.
