Police officers investigating a robbery in Bournemouth on 7 July are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.
The incident occurred at around 5.30pm on a footbridge at the end of Capstone Road. The victim was a 16-year-old boy from Bournemouth, who walked past two young people, before hearing someone running up behind him.
The victim was shoved to the floor by one of the offenders and subsequently punched in the side of the head by the second offender. He sustained a graze to his knee and lump on his head and his phone was stolen.
The first offender is described by the victim as mixed race, 16 years old and with Afro textured hair. He was wearing a black jumper and grey joggers. The second offender is described as white, slightly younger in age and was wearing a white top.
Police Constable Paul Humber, of Bournemouth police, said: “I am carrying out a number of enquiries to try and identify those responsible.
“I am appealing to anyone who was in the area and may have witnessed what happened to please come forward.
“I am particularly keen to speak to a group of children who came to ask the victim if he was OK shortly after the incident as they may have important information to assist my enquiries.”
