15:15 29 January 2013

Two males carrying a small knife robbed a 16-year-old in Hainault and made away with his mobile phone on Saturday.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the robbery which happened at 5pm when two men approached the victim, who was with a friend in the car park on Foremark Close.

Both suspects rode off on their pedal bikes towards Manford Way.

The first suspect is described as a 16/17 year old of mixed race, around 6ft, with two inch long afro hair and a harelip scar on his top lip.

He was wearing a black and blue puffer jacket with a diagonal stripe pattern and was riding a white mountain bike at the time.
