Detectives in Horsham are appealing for information about the robbery of a 14-year-old boy in the town.

The boy was walking from the duck pond in Horsham Park between 10.40am and 10.50am on Wednesday (December 23). He heard people walking behind him and was shoved to the ground.

He saw two people running off and was approached by a blonde woman, who he believes to be in her 40s, who asked if he was okay.

She walked back towards the duck pond with him. He then noticed that his phone, a black iPhone 4S with a black charging case, was missing and asked the woman to ring it, but they were unable to hear it.

His two attackers are described as both wearing grey hooded tops; one had short blonde hair and the other short brown hair, but he could not say definitely if either was male or female.

Detective Sergeant Karrie Bohanna said: “This was obviously a very alarming experience and we are keen to speak to any witnesses, especially the woman who went to his assistance.

“If you have any information, please email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting serial 700 of 23/12.”
