A TEENAGE boy was robbed as he walked home from a football training session in Huntingdon.

The 17-year-old had walked along Stukeley Road towards Stukeley Meadows and had turned onto a short footpath leading to Wertheim Way at about 10pm on Monday (October 11) when he saw two men walking towards him.

As they approached, one quickened his pace and passed while the other walked up to him and punched him in the face. At the same time the other man pulled him back and to the ground.

One of the men tried to grab the victim's bag and as he tried to get to his feet he was punched again. The men then took the bag and one of them stamped on his leg before both attackers walked off.

The victim suffered minor injuries and was left very shaken. His bag contained a black iPod Touch, a jacket and football boots.

The first robber is described as white, six feet tall, aged 30 to 40, muscular, clean shaven, and wearing a plain dark green t-shirt and brown boots.

The second is described as white, six feet tall, aged 30 to 40, clean shaven, with short hair, an Eastern European accent, and wearing a black Puffa-type jacket and jeans.

DC Hollie Daines, from Huntingdon Police Station, said: "The footpath where this attack took place is visible from the road so I believe someone may have seen what happened.

"I would ask anyone who was in the area to consider whether they saw anything important or recognise the descriptions given. Any information could be very important to the investigation."

INFORMATION: Anyone with information should contact DC Daines on 0345 456 456 4, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
