Police are appealing for information after three teenage boys out walking a dog in Alvaston were robbed.

The three boys, two aged 14 and one aged 13, were walking on Harlow Close at around 5pm on Monday, May 12 when they were approached from behind by three older boys.

One of the boys had his phone stolen from his hand and was punched by one of the offenders.
