Boy robbed of phone in Blackburn park attack
9:44am Thursday 25th October 2012 in News
A TEENAGER was assaulted and had his phone and wallet stolen in a park attack.
The 16-year-old boy was walking in Corporation Park with his girlfriend, 15, when he was approached by two Asian men.
The men, thought to be aged 17 or 18 and both wearing hooded tops, attacked him, then stole his Blackberry Torch phone, and a black wallet, just after 5pm on Tuesday.
Inspector Graham Ashcroft said: “This is a serious and violent offence. I am really keen to speak to anyone who knows the individuals, or saw them leaving the park.”
Call police on 101.
