Appeal for witnesses after teenagers robbed

Police are appealing for witnesses after two boys had their bikes snatched from them in a park in Sunderland.

The boys, 14, were riding their bikes in the skate park in Herrington Country Park on Saturday afternoon (June 23) when two other boys forced them to hand over the bikes.

Officers want to trace the boys, who are described as around 5' 9" tall and of slim build. Both were wearing tracksuits and hooded tops which partially covered their faces and are thought to be around 16 years old.

Anyone with any information should contact Northumbria Police.
