The 19-year-old victim noticed two men were behind him as he walked down an alleyway which exits onto Kendal Close in Boothville between 9.15pm and 9.45pm last night (Thursday, December 5).

He walked from Kendal Close onto Booth Lane North, Grange Road and Greenfield Avenue, becoming increasingly concerned about the pair’s intentions.

He then headed back to Kendal Close where the two men attacked him, punching him before stealing his wallet and his glasses, police said.
