City of London Police detectives are appealing for information
after a man was robbed of his bag on Watling Street.
Detectives have issued CCTV images of a group of teenagers they
want to talk to in connection with the incident and are asking for
the public’s help to identify them.
At around 9.45pm on Sunday 5 August 2012 the victim was
approached by five teenage boys.
One of the boys asked the victim for the time before grabbing
hold of his bag and attempting to pull it away.
A second boy then threatened “give him the bag or you will get
something else” and gestured with his hand towards the victim
causing him to release his grip on the bag after which the boys ran
away with it.
Detectives are following a number of lines of enquiry under
their investigation into the incident but are now issuing the CCTV
images as part of a public appeal.
Investigating officer, DS Mark Simmons, said:“We want to hear
from anyone with information about this incident or who thinks they
recognise these teenagers.
“Even the smallest piece of information could assist us in
apprehending those responsible for this robbery.”
Anyone with information should call DS Simmons on 020 76012147.
