TIPTREE: Teenage schoolgirl robbed by two men

A TEENAGE girl was robbed by two men as she walked home from school, police have said.

The victim, who was in her school uniform, was approached by the thugs in Grove Road, Tiptree, at about 3.35pm on Wednesday April 27.

One of the men grabbed the girl’s arms and pulled them behind her back while the other man took her handbag and emptied the contents on the ground.

They asked her if she had any money and she said no. The second man then released her arms while the first removed her school blazer and shook it. They then ran off empty-handed.

Pc Jo Worrow said: “I would like to urge anyone who may have any information in relation to this incident, no matter how insignificant they feel it may be, to come forward.
