|Teen Phone Thefts Concern - Police Seek Help|
Frightening attacks on teenagers are thought to be linked
Police in Ealing are appealing for help in identifying suspects in two phone robberies which detectives believe are linked.
The boy’s friends ran off leaving him surrounded by the three suspects. One of the group demanded any possessions the boy had and when he refused to hand over his phone he was threatened and told he would be stabbed. The man took the boy’s phone and oyster card from his trouser pocket and the group ran into the park.
The two others are described as male, black and wearing black hooded jackets.
Suspect2 is described as male, black, approximately 18-20 years old, Somali in appearance, 5ft 8ins to 5ft 10ins tall, 18-20, skinny build, wearing a black waterproof jacket possibly with a green ‘E’ logo on the left, black jeans and black shoes.
''I urgently need information to catch the suspects in these two robberies. In these cowardly acts, they seem to be targeting victims younger than themsleves who are easily intimidated and are unlikely to retaliate. I am keen to hear from anyone who was in the vicinity at the time of these two incidents and may have witnessed or heard anything, to come forward.”
