A TEENAGER was robbed and left with bruises after being attacked by two men outside a convenience store.

The 17-year-old was riding his bike past Tesco Express in North Street, Emsworth, when he was approached by two men.

The men assaulted him and stole his silver ‘Gary Fisher’ mountain bike, worth £180, and Samsung Tocco Lite mobile phone, worth £50.

Following the robbery the offenders walked off down the alley at the side of Tesco Express.

The teenage boy, from Emsworth, sustained bruises to his face and back during the incident, which took place between 9pm and 9.30pm last Wednesday.

One of the attackers was white, about 5ft 6in, skinny, 19 to 20 years old, with cropped greasy dark brown hair.

He was wearing a navy blue-coloured tracksuit, black trainers and several chunky gold rings on both hands.

The other man was about 5ft 8in, of medium build, about 18 years old, and was wearing a black waist-length coat with a hood zipped up.
