Boy robbed by other teens in Aylesbury

A teenager has been robbed by other boys in Aylesbury.

The 13-year-old was walking with friends over the Bourg Walk Bridge on Monday afternoon, at around 4pm when the incident happened.

They realised they were being followed by a group around their age.

The boys approached the victim and grabbed his bag, threatening to hit him in the face if he did not hand it over.

The victim gave the boys his bag and they then emptied the contents onto the floor, before three older teenagers came to his aid and the offenders left the scene.

Descriptions

  • The main offender is described as white, of school age and small in height with brown hair. He was wearing a motorcycle balaclava covering his head, but not his face, a dark coloured hooded top and white trainers.
  • Another boy in the group was white, school age, wearing a green hooded top with the hood up.
  • The others involved are all described of similar age wearing black hooded tops.
  • One of the boys had a school blazer over his hooded top.

An appeal for witnesses
