Police appeal for witnesses after teenager robbed at knifepoint
A teenager was robbed at knifepoint by three men dressed in dark clothing and ski masks, police said yesterday.
The 15-year-old boy had got off a bus and was walking along Clyde Best Lane, in Somerset, when he was reportedly confronted by three males in dark clothing and ski masks just before 3.30pm on Wednesday.
One produced a small knife, held it against the victim’s upper body and demanded money.
The suspects fled on foot after the young man, who was not injured during the incident, complied.
A police spokesman said that although the assailants were fully covered, the victim reported that two of the males were dark-skinned and one was light-skinned.
The matter is under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Inspector Clifford Roberts at the Criminal Investigations Unit/Special Investigations, on 717-0590 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Police asked residents and businesses nearby with CCTV cameras to check their recordings from between 3pm and 4pm and to get in contact if they notice suspicious activity.
