CCTV images released following robbery in Reading

Alert message sent 23/12/2020 14:16:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Police is releasing CCTV images of two men officers would like to speak to in connection with a robbery in Reading.

At 9pm on Sunday 13 December the victim, a 17-year-old boy, was walking with friends in Friar Street when they were approached by two men while outside the CEX shop.

The victim was separated from his friends by one of the offenders, who walked him to Victoria Park. Once there, he seriously assaulted him by headbutting, punching, kicking and stamping on his face and stomach.

The victim sustained serious eye, facial and arm injuries, which required treatment at the Royal Berkshire Hospital. He has since been discharged.

A small quantity of cash and a bus ticket were stolen during the incident.

The other offender threatened the remainder of the group on Friar Street and demanded they hand over a bag that one of them was carrying. This man was then spooked by a member of the public which resulted in him running away empty-handed.

Anyone with any information about the incident should contact the 24-hour non-emergency number 101 quoting the reference 43200422617.

Alternatively, you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers 100 per cent anonymously on 0800 555 111.

A 15-year-old boy from Wokingham was arrested on suspicion of robbery on 14 December and was bailed until 8 January.
