Police are appealing for witnesses and information after two teenage boys were robbed in Bushey on Tuesday (June 21).
The incident happened between 10.25pm and 10.55pm in an alleyway between Finch Lane and Homefield Road. The two boys were walking along the alley when they were approached by a group of five men, who threatened them and demanded their mobile phones.
They tried to run away, but were punched by the offenders, who then took their phones and one of the boy’s wallets. The offenders then made off towards the High Street.
Both boys received minor injuries.
The suspects are described as all wearing hoodies. One man is white, about 6ft 3ins tall and aged in his late teens to early 20s, another is of mixed race, and the others are all white.
Detective Constable Paul Spencer, from the Local Crime Unit, said: “This was an unpleasant ordeal for the victims.
“I am appealing for anyone with information, who witnessed the incident or saw a group of men running away from the alley at this time to come forward.
“I would also like to encourage anyone with any other information which may help solve this crime to contact me.”
Anyone with any information on this crime should ring DC Spencer via the non-emergency number 0845 33 00 222. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers (an independent charity) anonymously on 0800 555111.
