Teenager has three teeth knocked out by muggers in Epsom
A teenager had three teeth knocked out by muggers last Friday.
The attack took place at 4pm on October 5, when the 17-year-old boy was walking from Epsom station to the Sainsbury’s, on Kiln Lane.
He was approached by two men one of whom punched him in the face while the other searched his pockets.
They stole a black Blackberry mobile phone, an Oyster card and £200 in cash.
The South East Coast Ambulance Service was called and he was taken to East Surrey Hospital to have treatment for mouth injuries, including the loss of three teeth.
One mugger was black, 18 to 20-years-old, slim, and wearing a grey hooded jumper.
The second was black, and wearing a jacket with a fur lined hood and a Russian style fur hat which covered his ears.
Detective Constable, James Cumming, said: "The robbery took place in broad daylight in a very busy part of Epsom so there must have been people around who witnessed the incident and I would appeal to them to come forward.
"The victim was seriously assaulted during the robbery and this type of behaviour simply will not be tolerated and we will do all we can to find those responsible and bring them to justice."
Anyone with information should call the police on 101 quoting reference EP/12/3941 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
