THIS E-FIT image has been released by police in the hunt for two teenagers wanted for robbing a 15-year-old boy.

The victim was walking from Somers Road to the park between Bridgeside Close and Holbrook Road in Portsmouth when the incident happened.

The robbers walked up to the teenager as he approached the basketball court and ordered him to have over his rings.

One of the men was holding a serrated knife with a black rubber handle.

The terrified victim handed over his mobile phone, along with a gold sovereign coin ring and a ring with a black onyx jewel that had a panther engraved on it.

Now police have issued this e-fit image of one of the suspects wanted for the robbery, which happened at about 4.45pm on December 5.

He wore a light grey tracksuit and spoke with a London accent.

The second suspect was white, also aged 17 to 18. He wore a black hooded top with the hood up and black trousers.
