Attempted robbery of teenager in Taunton

We’re appealing for witnesses after a 14-year-old boy was the victim of an attempted robbery in Taunton.

The incident happened at around 5.45pm on Friday 27 November.

The victim was on his scooter crossing Hamilton Park, when he was approached by another teenager, who demanded he hand over his possessions.
