Teen sought over knife-point robbery attempt in Bullring

Police need to speak to this lad over an attempted knife-point robbery in the Bullring Shopping Centre

The offender – who the police suspect is in his mid- to late teens – is suspected of pulling a knife on a schoolboy and demanding his bag and money.

It’s believed he threatened to stab the child.

The victim ran off to the aid of a passer-by and the offender, who was with another teenager, made off from the scene.

Officers have arrested a 14-year-old boy in connection with the incident but really need to identify this lad.

It happened on 5 August at around 5.20 pm.

If you believe you recognise the lad, who appears to be wearing a large silver medallion, please do the right thing and get in touch.
