Warrnambool incident leads to two teens and woman being charged with aggravated burglary

​TWO teenagers and a woman in her 40s have been charged after they allegedly entered a home armed with a cricket bat and caused damage.

Detective Senior Constable Elissa Smith, of the Warrnambool police crime investigation unit, said there was an incident at Hopetoun Road on Tuesday night.

​Police have arrested, interviewed, charged and bailed a 17-year-old girl, a 16-year-old boy and a woman in her 40s.

They have been charged with aggravated burglary, assault and causing damages.

The teenagers will appear in a court during March and the woman in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court next week.

Detective Senior Constable Smith said investigations into the incident were continuing and the alleged victims were a similar age to the charged teenagers.

She said a disagreement involving the teenagers led to the incident.

Police initially said that up to five offenders forced their way into a unit on Hopetoun Road.

Three of the home’s occupants were allegedly threatened and one was allegedly assaulted. 

The offenders are also claimed to have damaged the home during the visit.
