Two teenage women have been mugged in Southport in broad daylight.
The women, aged 17 and 19, were allegedly threatened by a group of youths on Queen Street around 4:20 on Monday afternoon.
They claim one of the youngsters pulled a knife out, and demanded they hand over their jackets and shoes.
The group took off with the items.
Police arrested two 14-year-old boys a short time later.
They were each charged with two counts of armed robbery, while police continue to search for the rest of the group.
