Two young boys, aged 9 and 11 have allegedly been robbed and assaulted in an armed robbery in Melbourne's west.
Police were called to the scene - a park on Reserve Road in Melton - on Wednesday. The boys were approached by three other youths just after 5:45pm.
It has been alleged that one of the three youths produced an edged weapon, and demanded that the 11 year old boy handed over his phone.
