Teenager Threatened With Knife
Detectives in Luton are appealing for witnesses to come forward after 16 year old boy was threatened with a knife during an attempted robbery last week.
It happened on Wednesday 5th June at around 4pm. The victim was walking along Rotherham Avenue near the junction of Farley Farm Road when he was approached by three offenders who demanded that he emptied his pockets. When he refused, one of the offenders produced a knife and threatened the victim. The offender then searched the victim but when he found nothing of value the three offenders made off towards Tinsley Close.
All three offenders were black males and aged 19 or 20 years old. The first offender who was armed with the knife was around six feet two inches tall, of stocky build, wearing a black hooded top, light blue jeans, trainers and was carrying a black side bag. The second offender was around five feet eight inches tall, of average build, wearing a black top and black tracksuit bottoms with stripes down the side. The third was also around five feet eight inches tall, of average build, wearing a dark blue hooded top and blue jeans.
Detective Constable Rebecca Kitts, who is investigating the incident, is keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time of the attack and may have seen the three offenders.
