We’re asking for help to trace three boys who tried to rob an elderly man in Watchet.
The incident happened between 7.30pm and 8.30pm along the footpath between Maglands Road and Liddymore Road on Saturday 3 February.
A 70-year-old man was accosted by the boys who demanded money, telling him they had a knife.
The man was able to fight them off and they ran away.
One of them - described as a white male aged about 14, 5’4” to 5’6” tall, of slim build and wearing a dark hooded top with the hood pulled up - ran towards Maglands Road.
The other two are both described as white males aged about 14, between 5’4” to 5’6” tall of slim build. One had a scarf round his neck, and the other was wearing a dark coloured coat with the collar turned up. Both of these ran to Liddymore Road and turned right towards the Spar shop.
Anyone who thinks they may know the boys, witnessed the incident or have any information please call 101 and quote reference 5218025914.
