A Glenroy teenager has been placed on 12 months' probation for his role in the robbery of two 16-year-old boys.
The boy's accomplices were both adults at the time, with the identity of the third not known.
The boy previously pleaded guilty in Albury Children's Court to robbery in company, common assault, stalk or intimidate and using an offensive weapon to prevent detention.
Magistrate Imad Abdul-Karim put the boy, who police believed was born some time in 2001, on probation over the assault and stalk or intimidate matters.
He effectively was placed on a 12-month good behaviour bond for the robbery in company charge.
The court previously heard how the boy, who already had a long criminal history, was with the trio when they tried to get the victims to hand over cash near Myer Centrepoint on November 23 about 9pm.
It was the boy's adult accomplice who demanded the cash and then the bag of one of the victims.
The boy punched a man who came to the victims' aid after he demanded the bag be returned.
