Teenager Arrested After Boy Robbed
A teenager has been arrested on suspicion of robbing a 14-year-old boy in a park in Portsmouth.
He was approached and threatened with violence by another youth in a play park area of Church Road around 3pm on Saturday 30 March - a Blackberry Curve mobile phone was reported stolen.
A 15-year-old boy was arrested during the early hours of Monday 1 April on suspicion of robbery. He was questioned and later bailed until May 3 while investigations continue.
Detective Constable Pete Bambury said: "This was a robbery in the middle of a residential part of Portsmouth during the afternoon. I am appealing to any members of the local community, who may have seen what happened to the boy and in turn speak to the police."
