A teenage boy is due to face children's court today over an alleged bag snatching incident at Jesmond.
Police say the 17-year-old approached a woman from behind as she was getting into her car at the Stockland shopping centre on Blue Gum Road on Wednesday night and pulled the bag from her shoulder before running off.
The woman suffered minor injuries in the incident.
Police arrested the teenager at Wallsend yesterday - it's alleged he was involved in a number of other offences around the shopping centre.
He's been charged with trespass, armed robbery, 4 counts of stealing and breaching bail.
