A 14-YEAR-OLD boy has been punched in the face and robbed by a gang in Tidworth.

The teenager was walking along Wylie Road at about 2pm yesterday (November 25) when he was approached by a group of males.

They demanded that he gave them his money, before punching him in the face.

He went to hospital with his mum following the incident and is suspected to have suffered a broken nose.

A search of the area was carried out by officers and enquiries are ongoing.

PC Myles Scott said: “If you were in the area around this time and have a dash cam fitted to your vehicle, you could have footage which could help with our enquiries to locate those involved.

“One of the suspects is described as wearing a black zip-up hoodie, and both were wearing black tracksuit bottoms. One of them was approximately 5 ft 2 inches tall with dark hair and the other was around 5 ft 6 with blonde hair.”
