Armed teen after justice

A WARWICK teenager who was so enraged by an attack on his home he decided to unleash his own style of justice by entering the police station armed, has appeared in court over the incident.

Callen Steven Olsen, 17, last week appeared in the Warwick Magistrates Court and pleaded guilty to possessing a knife in a public place.

The court heard Olsen entered the Warwick police station on May 17, armed with a knife and scissors before asking to speak with the man he believed committed a home invasion at his house.

He told the police he wanted to “sort something out” with the man and police officers noticed the scissors in Olsen’s hand, which he was instructed to put down.

Olsen complied and then voluntarily produced a wooden-handled kitchen knife he had tucked away in his pocket.

During the court proceedings, Olsen’s girlfriend’s mother spoke on his behalf, saying the teen had moved to Warwick from Brisbane to turn his life around.

The court heard from the woman that he had, until that point, lived a relatively quiet life since making the move to Warwick.

She said Olsen was drinking at the time of the incident and became enraged at not being able to protect his home, his girlfriend and himself.

Olsen was placed on a six-month good behaviour bond and no conviction was recorded.
