TWO teenagers were robbed last night in Church Road, Stowupland.

Three male teenagers were walking along the pavement when a man exited a silver Renault Clio stopped in Thorney Green Road and approached them. He assaulted and threatened one of the teenage victims, pushing him to the ground.

A wallet and black Samsung mobile phone were stolen from the victim, who sustained a graze and swelling to his face as a result of the incident.

The offender then demanded property from one of the other male teenagers who handed over his wallet, containing an amount of cash. He was not injured from the incident.

The offender then got back into the passenger seat of the Renault Clio and was driven off towards Forward Green. The driver of the vehicle was not seen.

The male offender is described as approximately 5ft 8ins tall, of a medium build, about 17 or 18-years-old and was wearing a black hooded top, tracksuit bottoms and a black scarf over his face.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the robbery which happened at about 8pm. Call Stowmarket Neighbourhood Response Team on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
