Police are appealing for witnesses after a series of knifepoint robberies on the Honeybourne Line in Cheltenham yesterday evening, Tuesday 25 July.
Three people were targeted on separate occasions by two men, who threatened them with a knife.
In the first incident, which happened at about 9.20pm, a teenage boy on his e-scooter was approached by two men. One of them pulled out a kitchen knife and threatened the victim before taking his e-scooter.
A few minutes later, another teenage boy on an e-scooter was approached by two men. One of the men was on an e-scooter and the other was on a bike. They again threatened the victim with a knife before taking his e-scooter.
Finally, at 9.45pm, a teenage boy was walking along the Honeybourne Line when he was again approached by two men who tried to steal his belongings at knifepoint. He was able to get away but they managed to take his bag containing Airpods.
The two men are believed to have then headed in the direction of High Street.
