Officers are appealing for witnesses and information after a report of a 14-year-old boy being robbed at knifepoint in a Nottingham park.

The boy was in Kirkstead Street Park in Hyson Green, at about 5.35pm on Saturday 3 March 2018, when he was approached by four youths.

One of them produced a knife and asked for the boy’s mobile phone. Another lifted his top to reveal the handle of what was believed to be a knife in his waistband.

The boy handed over his phone and his Hugo Boss belt. One of the youths stole a small quantity of cash from the boy’s pockets and they took some toiletries from his bag before the victim left.

One of the offenders is Asian, about 16 or 17-years-old and about 5ft 11ins tall. He has short black flattened down hair and is believed to have been wearing several black coats and black tracksuit bottoms or trousers.

Another is black, about 15-years-old, about 5ft 8ins tall and is of chubby build. He has pink rashes on his face and short afro hair. He was wearing a navy blue coat that was open with a black T-shirt underneath, black joggers and black Nike Air Force trainers. He was also wearing a navy blue Nike pouch across his body.

A third suspect is mixed race, about 18-years-old, of skinny build and had black dreadlocks to below his shoulders. He was wearing a dark blue jacket and light blue jeans with white Nike Air Force trainers.

The fourth suspect is Asian, about 14-years-old, about 5ft 3ins tall and of small build.
