Basildon: Efit Released After Teen Robbed
Police have released an Efit of a man they want to question after a teenage boy was robbed in Basildon.
The 14-year-old was at the end of a bridge crossing over Broadmayne into Timberlog Close, when he was approached by two men.
One of the men held his jumper while they demanded he hand over his belongings.
They then took his Iphone 4S and headphones and £3 in change from the boy.
The victim, who is from Grays, was uninjured but left shaken by the robbery which happened at about 2.45pm on Sunday 26 May.
Anyone who recognises the man in the E Fit or has any other information is asked to contact Dc Angela Tappin, or her colleagues at Basildon CID on 101. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
