Teenagers victims of violent

robbery

TWO 13-year-olds have told police they were victims of a violent street robbery.

The pair had been walking along First Avenue in Havant when they were approached by two older teenagers.

One of the robbers snatched a mobile phone from the hand of one of the victims, and demanded the other hand over his as well.

When he refused, the second suspect punched him in the face, causing him to fall to the ground, suffering a cut to the lip.

The robbers then searched him before leaving the scene at about 5pm on Monday.

PC Chris Dodd said: ‘This is an isolated incident of robbery, but as ever, we would always caution members of the public to be careful about having valuables on show, and to be aware of your surroundings at all times.'

The suspects were white, skinny, and about 15 to 16 years old.

One was about 5ft 5in, while the other was 5ft 9in. Both wore black and green hats that covered the ears with drawstrings hanging from them.

Call police on 101.
