Police hunt street robbers

Have your say

POLICE are hunting a gang of yobs who robbed a teenage boy as he walked through Dronfield.

The 16-year-old was near the fire station on Cemetery Road when he was approached by four thugs who demanded he hand over his mobile phone and the loose change he was carrying.

One of the robbers punched him in his face.

The gang was last seen fleeing along Hallowes Lane.

The victim was unable to guess the culprits’ ages, but said all were white and wearing dark clothing.

The teenager informed his family of the robbery when he got home and a relative telephoned the police.

Witnesses to the incident at 11pm last Thursday or anyone with information should call Derbyshire Police on 101.

Crimestoppers can also be contacted on 0800 555111.
