On Friday, a Frankston boy, also 14, was charged with a range of felonies, including armed robbery, conduct endangering life, causing serious injury with intent and robbery.
He was scheduled to appear in juvenile court later that day.
On Thursday, Detective Inspector Scott Dwyer said investigators had identified all suspects and warned their arrests were “imminent”.
Detectives are investigating whether there is a connection to other recent violent incidents in the area.
About ten minutes earlier, two machete-wielding men robbed four teenagers in the same suburb, but police have yet to confirm whether the two incidents are linked.
As a precaution, extra patrols have been deployed in the Glen Eira and Bayside areas, near where the attacks took place.
Inspector Dwyer urged the public not to be alarmed as officers hoped to deter crime.
