Police are appealing for information after a 17-year-old boy was robbed in Eynesbury on May 1.

The victim had driven to Howitts Gardens with two friends at about 11pm and was waiting for another friend when a dark Seat Ibiza pulled up behind them.

One man, described as white, skinny, about 6’ with short hair and about 20-years-old, got out the vehicle, went up to the victim’s door and asked him if he ‘had any gear’.

He responded, saying no, before the offender opened the car door and grabbed his wallet from the panel inside the door.

The victim then got out of the vehicle to confront the offender, when a second man, who is described as white, between 18 and 19-years-old and large build, approached and punched him twice to the head.

Detective Constable Karin Peters said: “The offenders then got back in the navy Seat and drove off with no lights on.

“There were also two other men inside the vehicle, one described as white, one in their late teens and the other in his early 20s.
