POLICE are appealing for witnesses following a robbery which took place in First Avenue, Harlow.
It happened just before 1am yesterday (Tuesday, July 29). A 20-year-old man from Harlow was threatened by two suspects near the Burnt Mill Academy. They also threatened his partner. They snatched his white IPhone and tried to punch him but did not make contact with him. They then ran off from the scene. The Arriva 510 bus which travels to Stansted had just gone past so any passengers on board may have seen something suspicious.
One of the suspects is described as white, aged between 17 and 18, was around 5ft 11ins tall and had dark brown short hair and was wearing a white Adidas T shirt with a big, black logo on the front and light grey jogging bottoms.
The other man is described as white, aged between 17 and 18, around 5ft 10ins tall, of slim build with short, light brown hair, acne and freckles and was wearing a dark grey hooded top which was zipped up the middle.
Anybody with any information about the incident is asked to contact officers at Harlow on Essex Police 101. They can also contact independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
