We’re appealing for witnesses after a teenager had his trainers stolen during a robbery in Bristol.

The victim, a 17-year-old boy, was in Hengrove Leisure Park when he was approached by two men at just after 3.30pm on Monday 4 July. One of the offenders threatened him with a knife before stealing his black Nike Air Max trainers.

One suspect is described as mixed race, of large build, wearing glasses, a blue coat, and a face covering. The second was white, with a bushy beard, wearing a grey Nike tracksuit, red gloves and he had a bag with him. Both are described as being in their mid to late teens.
