    Boy, 16, is charged with murder after a teenager was ‘stabbed to death during a wild 1am brawl at a skate park after a war of words on social media’

    • A 16-year-old has been charged with murder after alleged brawl at a skate park 
    • Police allege a group of youths made threats online before meeting to fight
    • An 18-year-old was allegedly stabbed in the melee and died at the scene 

    A 16-year-old boy has been charged with murder after a teenager was allegedly stabbed to death during a brawl at a skate park.

    Police allege a group of youths made threats to each other online before agreeing to meet at the park on Dillon Close in Weston, Canberra, for a fight last month.

    Officers were called to the scene at about 1am on Sunday 27 September after the 16-year-old boy and an 18-year-old man suffered stab wounds.  

    The 16-year-old allegedly used a knife to stab his victim multiple times. The 18-year-old died at the scene.

    The boy appeared in the ACT Children’s Court by videolink from the Bimberi Youth Justice Centre on Wednesday after being charged with murder and affray.   

    Detective Superintendent Scott Moller said the alleged stabbing was a traumatic incident for everyone, specifically the families of the two involved.  

    ‘There’s a family deeply grieving the loss of their son and because we must seek justice, another family is potentially facing life-long consequences for what happened that night,’ he said.

    ‘This has been a tough investigation for detectives, it’s always very sad when young people are involved in serious crime.

    ‘When police were called it was too late to make a difference and that’s shattering for us because we are here to help anyone in trouble.’

    Detective Superintendent Moller pleaded for young people to contact police or a trusted adult if issues escalate online.  

    A police and emergency services operation is conducted after the alleged stabbing on September 27

    ‘Cyber abuse and cyberbullying can quickly intensify in scale and nature, and feel deeply personal,’ he said.

    ‘It can be hard but try not to respond or retaliate. If possible switch off your phone for a while and seek help.

    ‘Before you block or delete the person and comments, make sure you save the evidence of what has occurred. This can help a police investigation if it’s needed. 

    ‘It may not seem like it at the time but I promise you, you won’t regret asking for help if you’re being abused or bullied online – it could save your life.’

    Police are asking for anyone who was involved in the fight or who has further information to come forward.
