A 16-year-old boy was brutally attacked and robbed of his mobile phone on Friday.
The teenager was riding his bike to meet some friends in Goodmayes Park when five boys, aged around 16, came up from behind parked cars and made him get off his bike in Arberdour Road, Goodmayes.
He was punched and kicked while on the floor and his phone was taken.
He managed to get up and cycle away, throwing small coins at his attackers to stop them following him.
The group picked up the money and left the boy to cycle away.
