Detectives investigating a street robbery on High Street in Bromley are appealing for help to trace the two victims.

At around 1.00pm on Saturday, January 27, three males wearing balaclavas approached the two victims before searching their pockets and stealing cash.

The robbery was caught on CCTV, and an operator was able to guide police to the suspects, who were arrested nearby a short time later on suspicion of robbery.

The three suspects, aged 12, 13 and 14, were questioned and subsequently bailed until a date in mid-February.

The victims were not present at the scene by the time officers arrived and could not be located after the incident.

They are described as being white and aged 12 or 13 years old. Officers would like to speak to them about the robbery.

DC Lorraine Robinson, the investigating officer from the Bromley Robbery Squad, said: “Officers responded quickly to this report and arrested three suspects for this robbery within an hour of the offence being committed, but we have not been able to locate the victims.

“We would urge them to come forward - we would just like to speak to them and get an account of what happened.”

Any witnesses or anyone with any information is asked to call officers at Bromley on 07795334919, or contact via Twitter @MetCC.

To give information anonymously contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.
