Robbery or Stealing from the Person is an offence under section 94 of the Crimes Act 1900 which carries a maximum penalty of 14 years in prison
To establish the offence, the prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt that you:
Robbed or assaulted another person with the intention to rob, or stole any chattel, money or valuable security from the person of another
The legislation does not define the word ‘rob’ however, the courts have found that it is where:
“the victim… [is] compelled by force or fear to submit to the theft”
“It is not necessary that the offender applies force…”
“It is enough that the offender by his or her conduct… puts the victim in fear of violence”.
