Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following two incidents that happened in Briants Avenue in Caversham, Reading.
At around 5.20pm on Monday (8/1), four male offenders, have chased a teenage boy down Briants Avenue into Marsack Street. We believe the victim has managed to get away from the four offenders.
At around 5.30pm the four offenders have then robbed a teenage male at knife point in an alleyway that leads from Flambards to Briants Avenue. The offenders took a watch, which was later recovered.
Officers attended the scene of this incident and four 15-year-old boys were arrested in connection with the robbery.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Mike Hanson, said: “We are appealing for witnesses to either of these incidents to please come forward.
“We are specifically keen to trace the victim of the first incident who was reportedly chased by the four offenders as he has yet to come forward.
“He is described as being a white teenager.
“Additionally we would ask anyone with dash-cam footage or CCTV or witness information to come forward.
“Anyone with information can provide it through our online pages or by calling 101 quoting reference 43240011100.
“Or if you do not wish to speak to the police you can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 and they will take your information 100% anonymously.”
