Knife held to stomach in West Ewell robbery

A 21-year-old man had a knife pressed into his stomach while a boy pinned his arms behind his back during a robbery by four teenagers in Surrey.

The attack in West Ewell, in the park area near the junction of Ruxley Land and Scotts Farm Road, happened at about 18:30 BST on Monday.

The suspects were described as between 13 and 16 years old.

A wallet and two mobile phones were taken by by the group, who were chased by a passing cyclist.

He caught up with two of the boys and asked for the wallet back. The pair left the scene on bikes in the direction of Hogsmill Common.

Metal crutch

The boy with the knife is described as black, skinny and about 5ft 5in tall with cropped hair. He was wearing a white T-shirt.

One of the other boys is described as black, of an athletic build, between 5ft 8in and 5ft 9in tall, with cropped hair.

He was wearing a black, puffy, sleeveless jacket with a zip down the front with a chain hanging from it, over a dark, possibly red, T-shirt, and blue jeans. He was carrying a metal crutch.

The third suspect is described as black, between 5ft 8in and 5ft 9in tall and of a larger build than the others. He was wearing a grey hooded top with no zip.

Surrey Police said they had no specific description for the fourth boy other than that he was also black and of a similar age to the rest of the group.

Police have asked for anyone with information about the attack to contact them.
