We’re appealing for witnesses after two boys were robbed in Southampton.
At around 3.30pm on Saturday, 3 December, two boys aged 13 and 14 were just inside Houndwell Park, near the Vincents Walk entrance, when they were approached by two other boys unknown to them.
The two boys spoke to the victims before searching them and taking a quantity of cash from their pockets.
One of the boys lowered the waistband of his trousers and showed what was described as the handle of a gun before walking away.
The first boy is described as:
• Black • Around 16-18 years-old • Approximately 6ft tall • Slim • Hair wrapped in a bun under a black turban • Big nose and a bit of stubble • Wearing a black hoodie and dark coloured trousers • Spoke with a local accent
The second boy is described as:
• Around 16-18 years-old • 5ft 9inches to 6ft tall • Medium build • Brown short hair • Brown eyes and no facial hair • Wearing a black hoodie and dark coloured trousers / black puffer coat with the hood up. • Spoke with a local accent
Officers have been carrying out enquiries since this incident and are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen something.
