A teenager has been attacked and robbed in a Preston street.

Emergency services were called earlier this month, after the 17-year-old was attacked while walking home.

The victim was walking home along Raglan Street at abour 11.15pm on May 1 when he saw three men standing on Inkerman Street.

He continued along the road towards Aqueduct Street when a man ran past him before stopping directly in front of him.

The man was then joined by a further two men.

The victim was then thought to have been punched and kicked by the three men who took a Lacoste watch, £10 in cash, a bank card and a gold iPhone 5S from the teenager before running off.

The teen suffered minor injuries to his face as a result of the attack.

The three men are described as white and thought to be about 19 years old.

All three were wearing dark clothing with their hoods up at the time of the attack.

One man is described as 5ft 9in tall, another 6ft 2 tall who spoke with a local accent and the third thought to be 5ft 11in tall.

DC 3011 Abid Majid, of Preston Police, said: “This was a nasty attack on a young man who was simply making his way home from an evening with his friends.

2We are keen to trace the three men involved and I would urge anyone with information about the incident to get in touch.”

Anyone with any information can contact police on 101 quoting log number 1524 of May 1.
