Boy, 15, injured after robbers attack him in Wisbech street

A TEENAGER suffered facial injuries after he was attacked by a group of men during a robbery in Wisbech.

The 15-year-old boy was cycling home after visiting a friend’s house in Sefton Avenue at about 5.55pm on Tuesday, when he saw three men sitting at the rear of a disused shop formerly known at ‘All Branz’.

One of the men grabbed him and punched him in the face before throwing him to the floor. The second searched his pockets and stole some money.

The men then walked off in the direction of Wisbech town centre.

The first man is described as white, tanned, in his late 20s, 6ft 2in and of medium build. He had cropped grey hair and was wearing a black scarf, dark blue jeans and a black leather motorcycle jacket.
