Were you in the Highfield Street area of Coalville last Wednesday evening (11 January)?
We’re investigating a robbery where a 15-year-old boy was approached and assaulted before his bag was stolen.
The victim sustained minor injuries, the bag was later discovered in Highfield Street and nothing had been stolen.
The suspect has been described as a white man, of slim build, in his late teens. He was wearing a grey or dark tracksuit with the hood pulled up over his head.
