Main article content
We are appealing for witnesses after three teenagers were robbed at knifepoint yesterday evening (30 June).
The victims were parked in a car in Willow Bank and had their windows down when they were approached by two men at around 9pm. One of the suspects snatched the driver’s car keys and demanded his belongings. He then punched the victim in the face and threatened him with a knife.
The other suspect also demanded the passenger’s bag and threatened him with a knife. Fortunately, the victims escaped with minor injuries.
The two suspects fled the scene a few minutes later, taking the victim’s car keys, a Gucci bag and an Armani bag. One of the victim’s phones was also deliberately smashed by the suspects.
Police attended the scene along with an armed response unit and helicopter in search of the suspects. However, despite a thorough search, the suspects were not located.
One of the suspects is described as dual heritage, 5ft 11, of a thin build with short black hair and was clean shaven. He was wearing a black hooded zipped jumper and a black t-shirt.
The second suspect is described as Asian and was wearing a pale grey North Face hooded top with the hood up.
