Three youths were charged last week and three further youths were arrested at a Hamilton property earlier today.

Detective Sergeant Mary van Dongen said they will appear in the Hamilton Youth Court this afternoon to face multiple charges including aggravated robbery and aggravated wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

"Today's result is pleasing and we now believe we have located all of those responsible for these offences," she said.
