Teenager loses phone after being assaulted by three men in mugging

PUBLISHED: 15:36 01 June 2018 | UPDATED: 15:36 01 June 2018

Police are investigating after a teenager was attacked by three men in Braintree.

The 18 year-old man was walking along Park Drive at around 11.50pm on Wednesday, May 30, speaking on his phone when he was assaulted.

He dropped his phone, which was then stolen by the men.

The men have been described as white all wearing balaclavas and tops with hoods up.

All three had got out of a dark coloured car, believed to be a Volkswagen Golf, prior to the attack. The car left the scene and the men made off after the attack on foot in the direction of Challis Lane.

The victim suffered injuries to his head which are not believed to be life-threatening or life-changing.

Anyone saw the men, live in the area and has CCTV, or was driving and has dash cam footage, please call Essex police on 101 quoting crime reference number 42/75534/18, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

With Christmas around the corner, Suffolk has retail temp jobs a plenty - but which jobs in other sectors are getting increasingly tough to fill?

Over the Christmas and New Year period we all struggle to keep a lid on our waste - the food bin groans under the weight of turkey carcasses and our blue recycling bulges with empty boxes from trikes and new games consoles so the last thing you want is to miss your rubbish collection.

Suffolk police seized a higher volume of crack cocaine than any force outside the Met last year, according to new figures.

An Ipswich mother has called for measures to slow drivers at a busy junction after her son almost died in a collision there.

Today we can finally reveal the names of the people selected to be on our first ever Inspiring Women of Suffolk list.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.
