The girl has been bailed to appear at a children’s court at a later date.

On Monday last week, a 14-year-old school boy was allegedly forced into an SUV in Glen Huntly before being ejected from the moving vehicle shortly after.

The boy remained in hospital in a serious condition. Police have said he sustained “life-altering” head injuries.

Two other teens were charged last week in relation to the alleged abduction.

On Thursday, a 14-year-old boy was arrested and charged with 30 offences, including theft of a vehicle and intentionally causing serious injury, according to documents released by the court.

He was accused of stealing goods, including a Volkswagen valued at more than $55,000, several mobile phones, an electric scooter and multiple sets of keys. The case is scheduled to return to court on September 28.

A 15-year-old was arrested on Saturday and charged with multiple counts of armed robbery, robbery, conduct endangering life, intentionally causing serious injury, theft of motor vehicle and theft. He was remanded to the Children’s Court.

A spokeswoman for Victoria Police said the investigation was ongoing.
