Schoolboys robbed by man with flick knife


THREE local boys at Warrington were robbed by a man riding a bicycle and brandishing a flick knife.
Detectives are appealing for witnesses to get in touch following the robbery in Station Road North, Fearnhead.
The incident was at about 4pm last Saturday (January 12).
Police said the boys, aged 12 and 13 were walking along the road when the man approached them, brandishing the knife, and demanded money.
He took a small quantity of cash from one of the boys before riding off in the direction of Fearnhead Lane.
He is described as being around 18 years of age and of a heavy build.
The offender was wearing a black Berghaus jacket with the hood up and spoke with a Warrington accent.
Enquiries into the incident are ongoing and detectives are appealing for anyone who was in the area and witnessed anything that may be relevant to their investigation to come forward.
They also want to speak to anyone who believes they may know the identify of the offender or have CCTV or dashcam footage of him either before or after the robbery took place.
Detective Constable Jill Peggs said: “This was a frightening incident that has understandably left the boys shaken up and we are determined to catch the offender and make him face the consequences of his actions.
“I urge anyone who witnessed it or saw anything else that may aid our investigation to get in touch.”
