Appeal after street robbery in Kingswood

Can you help text on a photo of an officer holding a radio

We are appealing for witnesses after a robbery in a street in Kingswood.

A teenager was walking through Crates Close at around 8.30pm last Tuesday (October 2) when she was approached by three men.

All three had hoods up with face coverings. One threatened the victim with a knife and demanded she hand over her property.  A member of public came into Crates Close and the offenders ran away before they could take any property.

The first man is described as 6ft tall, skinny build, 18 to 19 years old, spoke with a local accent, wearing a black hooded top with NIKE across the chest and dark joggers.

 The second man is described as –  6ft 2ins tall, skinny build, 18 to 19 years old, spoke with a local accent, red waist length coat with a nose stud.

 The third man is described as white, skinny build, 15 to 16 years old, spoke with a local accent, a red hooded top (possibly Ralph Lauren) and jeans.


If anyone recognises these descriptions, or has any information that could help us with our investigation, please call 101 and quote reference number 5218220997.
