Police are appealing for information after a group of teens stole an electric scooter from another schoolboy.
The incident happened on Thompson Way, Innsworth near Gloucester, at around 4.30pm on Thursday 28 October, when the 14-year-old victim was walking with the scooter.
A group of three male teenagers, aged about 16, came up to the victim, with one of them placing his hands on the handlebars of the scooter. He had his hand in his trouser pocket, causing the younger boy to fear that he may have a knife.
The suspect then took the electric scooter, telling the victim to leave. The three older teens then headed off in the direction of Penrose Road.
The teenager who took the scooter is described as being white, with short blonde hair. He was wearing a grey padded jacket with a fur-lined hood and a black jogging bottoms. The other two teens were also wearing dark clothing and were already riding electric scooters.
The stolen scooter is a black Pure Air model, with PURE written across the handlebars.
Officers have made a number of inquiries and are now asking the public for their help.
