Police are appealing for witnesses after two teenage boys were robbed at knife point.

The two victims, aged 14 and 16, were walking along Sun Street, Waltham Abbey, at 10pm on Saturday, April 13 when.

A group of up to 16 boys, who had their faces covered then approached the two boys.

The group then asked both boys to hand over their phones and one of the suspects was armed with a knife.

Both boys handed over their phones and the suspects then fled, fortunately, nobody was injured during the robbery.

It is thought that a dark-coloured car, possibly thought to be a Mercedes or BMW, pulled up during the robbery may be linked to the suspects.

Anyone with information about the incident in the Sun Street area or the moments leading up to or after the attack, please can contact Loughton CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
