Three teens charged with Uptown robbery

Three New Westminster teenagers have been charged with robbing an Uptown restaurant Tuesday evening.

Police say two males went into the restaurant in the 700 block of Sixth Street about 9:15. They intimated they had weapons and ordered staff to the ground. They took some cash from the till and fled in a getaway vehicle driven by a third suspect.

The NWPD say they found all three about 15 minutes later in the same vehicle in the north alley of the 1200 block of Edinburgh Street. The trio appeared in provincial court Thursday.

Murid Ghulam, 19, is charged with robbery and committing an indictable offence with his face masked. A 17-year-old faces the same charges but can't be identified because he's a minor. A second 17-year-old has been charged with robbery.
