Students robbed in unprovoked attack
Thursday, 28 June 2012
TWO students were left cut and bruised after an unprovoked attack that saw thieves get away with a bike, wallet and mobile phone.
The attack happened in Shoeburyness when the male students were walking through a park near to the junction of Maplin Way North and Delaware Road at 11.30pm on Sunday.
They were approached by two men who asked them for a cigarette and then launched into an ‘unprovoked and violent’ attack, then ran off towards Maplin Way North.
Investigating Officer, DC Colin Clarkson, said: “We are very keen to identify these two attackers and bring them to justice.
“Nobody has the right to attack others and steal their personal property. We would like to remind everyone to plan well-lit, safe and main routes when walking home in darkness.”
The assailants are described as white, in their late teens or early 20s, slim to medium build, about 5ft 9ins tall, have short, dark hair and were wearing dark hoodies. Both spoke with Essex or east London accents.
The students, who are aged in their late teens, did not require any medical treatment.
Anyone with information in connection with this robbery is urged to contact detectives at Southend Police Station on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
