Police are searching for three teenagers who allegedly carried out a robbery on a train travelling between Mount Druitt and Seven Hills on Sunday.

Two males, 16, boarded the train at Mount Druitt station about 10pm.

When the train arrived at Blacktown, three males believed to be aged between 17 and 18, boarded the carriage and approached the youths.

Security footage captured the males boarding the train.

It’s alleged one of the males threatened the duo with a chain and demanded their phones and wallets.

Out of the fear the 16-year-olds handed over their phones, wallets, jewellery and a push bike.

The victims got off at Seven Hills station and called police.

The culprits are described as being of African descent and with a tall, thin build.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers, 1800 33 000.


A Blacktown woman will face fraud charges after she was arrested for allegedly using stolen credit cards.

The woman, 46, was tracked down by police after a man had his wallet stolen from his car parked outside his Prospect home last Tuesday.

After checking his bank history, he noticed his card had been used and told police.

Police reviewed security footage which led them to arrest the woman last week. She will face Blacktown Local Court at a later date.


A man, 21, was charged with robbery and assault offences after being found chasing a woman in Riverstone on Thursday.

Police were called to the scene on Regent Street about 7.10am on May 11, where officers found the man acting “extremely hostile”.

He had to be restrained by police, who later discovered the South Wentworthville man was wanted for a carjacking and armed robbery offence in Blacktown last month.

He was charged by Blacktown detectives at Riverstone police station with armed robbery, assault with intention to take a conveyance and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

The man will face Penrith Local Court on June 30.
