Four boys, including a 14-year-old, have been arrested following a knifepoint robbery outside a North York high school.

Police say a 17-year-old was approached by a group of four boys near Senator O’Connor College School on Thursday afternoon.

It’s alleged one of the boys produced a knife and held it to the victim’s throat while demanding he hand over his personal property.

Police have arrested two 16-year-olds, a 15-year-old and a 14-year-old in connection with the robbery. All four face a number of robbery charges while the 15-year-old also faces a charge of possession of a weapon.

The four cannot be named under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
