By Ivy Jensen

TWO men and a teenager have been arrested over an aggravated burglary in Echuca this morning.

Detective Senior Constable Bernadette Waddington of Echuca Criminal Investigation Unit said three males had broken into an Ogilvie Ave property through the back door about 5.50am and stolen a wallet and iPhone.

She said the 20-year-old male occupant woke up and saw one of them produce a bladed weapon.

‘‘A conversation was had and the victim was told not to call police,’’ she said.

Two Echuca men, aged 19 and 21, and a 15-year-old boy were interviewed by police this morning and are expected to be charged with aggravated burglary.

Police are making an application to remand them in custody.
