Detectives are appealing for the public’s help in identifying three people after a vulnerable boy was robbed in Bromley.

Officers attended the victim’s home after it was reported that a 15-year-old boy had been robbed at knifepoint at 19.45hrs on Friday, 6 September on Bromley High Street.

It was reported the boy had a knife held to his chest and throat and his trainers, jacket, mobile phone, money and oyster card were then stolen.

The suspects were described as a black male, who was wearing a du rag, and two black females, one of whom had a crutch.

A photograph was taken of the victim and he was told to not report the robbery to police.

The suspects then boarded a bus using the victim’s oyster card.

Detective Constable Ciara Riordan, of South Area, said: “This robbery has had a real impact on the victim’s life and he has not been able to go back to school since it happened.

“I would urge anyone who recognises the three people pictured to contact police on 101, quoting CAD 7617/06Sep.”
