Police have charged a girl with assault and stealing after she allegedly spat on a 57-year-old staff member at Orana Cinemas Geraldton last night and stole $280.

Police allege the 15-year-old and a group of teenagers were inside the cinema about 6.15pm when the girl allegedly spat on a female worker several times before forcing her way into the cash draw and stealing $280.

The girl was subsequently detained by police at Geraldton foreshore and the money was recovered.

Police are reviewing CCTV footage to determine whether other children at the scene should be charged.

The girl will face Geraldton Children’s Court later this month.
