CCTV appeal after boy robbed outside Bishop Wordworth’s School

A TEENAGE boy was threatened and robbed by two older males outside a Salisbury School. 

Officers investigating a robbery have today (Saturday April 9) released a CCTV image of two people they would like to speak to in connection with the incident. 

The incident happened at around 4pm on February 28 outside Bishop Wordsworth’s School in Exeter Street.

Police say a 14-year-old boy was approached by two older males believed to be aged in their late teens who made threats of violence and insinuated they had a knife before demanding the victim hand over his mobile phone.

“The victim was understandably shaken up, but fortunately, he was not injured,” a Wiltshire Police statement said.

The first suspect is described as white, male, approximately 5 ft 10 inches tall, average build, clean shaven with short black hair. He was wearing a black coat and blue jeans.

The second man is described as white, approximately 6 ft 3, of skinny build. He was wearing a navy blue hoody, navy tracksuit bottoms and had brown stubble on his face.

Anyone with information should call 101 and quote crime reference number 54220021524.
