TWO teenage boys were robbed by a group of youths as they were cycling along the Diglis Basin area of Worcester.

The two victims were cycling towards the city centre, near Basin Road, when they were stopped by a group of three teenage boys at about 5pm on Wednesday, August 10.

One of the victims was assaulted by two of the teenagers and his bag was stolen. One of two culprits then took his mountain bike and threw it into the river.

The same individual then threatened the second victim and took his mountain bike, using it to ride away from the scene with the other two in the group across the canal bridge towards the fountains.

A 16-year-old boy from Worcester has been arrested on suspicion of robbery and released on police bail until 3 September.

And a 15-year-old boy also from Worcester has been arrested on suspicion of robbery and released on police bail until 20 September.

Anyone who may have saw what happened, or has any information which could help with their investigation is urged to call West Mercia Police on 101 quoting incident reference 537s of Wednesday, August 10.

Alternatively, information can also be passed on anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or their website.
