Images of group released after 14-year-old forced to handover valuables

Detectives have released images of a group of people they wish to trace after a 14-year-old boy was subjected to a robbery in Mansfield.

The incident happened on Monday 23 October at around 3.30pm in Bancroft Lane.

The 14-year-old victim was walking to his friend’s house when he was approached by an unknown group.

He was pushed against a fence and then told to hand over his valuables.

These included his Airpods, a black Trapstar puffer jacket, a Valentino bag, and an NY London watch.

They also ripped the silver chain from around his neck.

The combined value of the items was more than £400.

The suspects then walked from Layton Avenue, over Rosemary Street, and down Union Street before moving to Walkden Street.

It is believed they used Mansfield Bus Station to leave the scene of the crime.

Extensive CCTV inquiries have taken place and a number of lines of inquiry are being investigated.

Detective Constable Rebecca Pottage, who is investigating the incident, said:

“This was a despicable crime and we are determined to catch those responsible.
