Robbery suspect arrested in the city

14 Feb 2020 8:12am

A man has been arrested following an aggravated robbery in the CBD this morning.

Just before 6am, Friday 14 February police were called to King William Street, near the corner of Grenfell Street after a man allegedly threatened the victim with a piece of glass and demanded cash.

Thankfully, the victim, a 27-year-old man from Windsor Gardens was not physically injured. The suspect left on foot with a small amount of cash.

Police quickly attended and located the alleged suspect on Flinders Street where he was placed under arrest without incident.

The 23-year-old Somerton Park man has been detained and taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital for a Mental Health assessment; he is expected to be charged with aggravated robbery later today.

Anyone who witnessed the incident who has not yet spoken to police is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report on line at
