Police are appealing for witnesses after two boys were threatened with a knife and robbed in Brockworth, Gloucester on Monday evening (24 January).
At approximately 8pm at the Mill Lane playing fields a group of around five teenage boys approached two younger boys.
One of the teenagers from the group took out a knife and threatened the two boys with it before taking a coat and bag from them.
The suspect is described as being a 16 to 18-year-old boy, white and of a slim build. He was wearing a black puffer jacket with pink detailing, black jogging bottoms with a white stripe and a balaclava type hat.
No-one was injured in the incident and the group fled from the playing field.
Officers are asking anyone who saw the incident or the group of teenagers in the area around the time to contact them.
