Officers investigating a robbery in Bournemouth are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.

At around 6.30pm on Tuesday 22 February 2022 the victim, a 14-year-old boy was with a friend on Chaseside near to the Littledown Centre when they were approached by a group of teenagers. The victim was pushed by one of the group and his AirPod headphones were stolen.

Police Constable Alice Fay, of Bournemouth police, said: “We are carrying out enquiries into this matter and I am appealing for any witnesses or anyone with information that might assist our investigation to please come forward.

“I would urge anyone with any images or footage of the incident not to share it on social media and to please contact us.”
