Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after a robbery in Milton Keynes on Saturday (10/3).
Around 7.15pm, a 15-year-old boy was walking along the Redway, which leads from Kents Hill to Kingston Retail Park, with a friend.
As the victim had entered the subway which allows the Redway to cross under the Brinklow Roundabout he was pulled backwards by the offender who grabbed the victim’s hood. As the victim turned around he was punched twice to the right side of his face, sustaining a cut to the right cheek. The victim was then kicked to the groin and the offenders ran away.
After the offenders had run away, the victim realised that his phone must have been dropped during this incident and believes that the offenders have picked up the white BlackBerry Curve 9300 phone, IMEI 358033046279799.
The first offender is described as a black boy, aged between 15 and 16-years-old, of medium build, and about 5ft 8ins. He was wearing a black hooded top with the hood up, black jogging bottoms and possibly a scarf to cover his face.
The second offender was a black man, of muscular build and around 6ft. He was wearing a black padded jacket with the hood up which had a white zip which was zipped up fully covering the bottom half of his face. He also was wearing bark blue baggy jeans that were lowered to his hip area and white Vans trainers.
DC Wendy Cissell, of local CID Milton Keynes, said: “I am appealing for anyone who saw the incident to contact police.
“I would like to speak to anyone who may have seen the offenders or someone trying to sell them the white BlackBerry Curve 9300 phone.”
Police are appealing for any witnesses to the offence, which left the victim shaken and upset. They would also like to hear from anyone who saw the offenders or the incident take place. The victim did not require hospital treatment.
Anyone with any information should contact DC Cissell via the 24-hour Thames Valley Police Enquiry Line on 101.
