Witnesses are being sought after a teenager was threatened with a knife and robbed of his coat in Broadmead Avenue, Northampton.
The incident occurred between 4.45pm and 5pm on Monday, January 29, when the boy was approached by other teenage boys, who asked him for the time.
The boy told them that he didn’t have a phone and one of the offenders then demanded his coat. When he refused, the offender elbowed him in the head twice before the victim retaliated and punched him in the face.
At this point, the second offender produced a knife and threatened the boy. He handed over his coat and the offenders, who were white and aged about 16-years-old, walked off. One of them was wearing a dark coloured tracksuit and the other a white Moncler hat.
Officers would like to speak to anyone who may have captured anyone acting suspiciously in the area prior to the incident on CCTV, doorbell, or dash-cam footage.
Witnesses to this incident or anyone with information are asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101, or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
