Posted on 24th November 2014

A 12-year-old boy was threatened by three teenagers and forced to hand over a small amount of cash.

The victim had boarded the number 40 Arriva bus on Osmaston Park Road, Derby, at about 8am on Friday, November 21.

He was sitting on the top deck of the bus near the three offenders, who then threatened him and told him to hand over his money.

The boy did so and then alighted the bus near Spider Island, in Allenton.

All three offenders were black and aged about 15 or 16.

One wore glasses, a black cap, black jacket and black jeans. Another wore a red jacket and black jeans, while the third was wearing a black jacket with the Merrill Academy badge. The third offender was of larger build than the other two.

Police investigating the robbery want to hear from passengers who may have been travelling on the number 40 Arriva bus around the time of the offence.

Witnesses or anyone with information should called Derbyshire police on 101, quoting incident 161 of November 21.
