Two teenagers were assaulted and robbed in Weston Village on Monday night, prompting a police investigation.
The incident happened at about 9.45pm when the 17-year-old youths had their mobile phones stolen and were ‘hurled abuse at’ and ‘hit twice in the face’ while they were walking home from football training along Moor Lane.
The mum of one of the victims told the Mercury she wants to warn others of the danger.
She said: “They were hit twice in the face and on the back of the head and were threatened viciously after they ignored abuse he hurled at them and tried to keep on walking.”
“I want to warn others and ask if anyone else saw the incident or knows anything about it to come forward and make sure this person is caught.

“It was a nasty and unprovoked incident that has left my son with a black eye and scared to leave the house.”
