A teenager was punched in the face by an attacker who told him his phone was not worth stealing.

The incident happened last Wednesday, February 26, between 7.10 and 7.30pm when the 14-year-old victim was walking from Bakehouse Lane towards Preston Court in Burton Latimer.

He was called over by a group of two men and one woman and one of the men asked the boy to show him his phone.

When he saw it was an old model, the man said ‘If it had been a Blackberry, we would have robbed you’.

He then punched the boy in the face.

All of the gang were white and aged about 18.

One of the men was between 5ft 8in and 5ft 9in.

He was wearing a baseball cap, a light blue Adidas jacket with a white logo on the back and dark blue jeans.

The second man was slim and over 5ft 9in.

The woman was shorter than 5ft 8in. She had shoulder-length black hair and was wearing dark clothes.
