Robbers Threaten to Shoot Victims
Two men set upon near Boston Manor Park
The victims, both males aged 20 years, were walking along Boston Manor Road passing the entrance to Boston Manor Park.
Two men approached the victims from behind and challenged them.
One of the assailants suddenly made a shape that looked like a gun under his jacket and said, “we’ve got a gun, give us your money or I’ll fire the gun”. At that point, he pulled victim forward by grabbing the scruff of his top and pulled him to the ground. The victim fell and hit his head on the ground.
Both men tried to drag the victims into the park entrance, however they managed to struggle free and ran back to the halls of residence.
The man who threatened to shoot the victims is described as an Asian male, 20 years old, 5’9”, medium build, wearing a three quarter length beige hooded jacket and jeans. The hood was pulled up around his face. He had a London accent.
His accomplice is described as a black male, 20 years, old 5’9”, and small-medium build, wearing a black jacket with the collar up. London accent.
