Detectives investigating a street robbery in Bournemouth have issued CCTV images of the suspects and are renewing their appeal for the public’s help to identify them.

At around 8.30pm on Sunday 16th July a group of four boys and two girls – all around 16 years old – were playing football in Kings Park when two men approached them.

The men threatened the group - claiming they had acid and a knife - and demanded cash. They stole money, a vape smoking device and one of the men tried to steal a bike belonging to one of the group.

The offenders ran off when one of the teenagers asked people nearby for help.

Detectives are asking anyone with information to contact Dorset Police on 101, quoting occurrence number 55170108800.
