Sydney Opera House evacuation: A teenage boy charged

Written by News, Student Life

Last week on Thursday (14/01/16), police sectioned off the Sydney Opera House to investigate the claims of a suspicious object.  One of ferry services to Manly Wharf was terminated around early noon. This eerily emptied out the usually busy location in the heart of Sydney CBD.


On the 19th January, a-17-year-old boy was arrested over threats made on social media resulting in the entire evacuation and police investigation. The hearing will be held next month 23rd February at Children’s Court with an allegedly false representation.
