A TEENAGE boy had his wallet stolen by three men in a daylight robbery as he walked down a road in High Wycombe.

The robbery happened at about 11.10am on Monday, January 14, when the 17-year-old was walking down Chairborough Road.

When he passed the Jolly Bodger pub he saw three black men walking on the same side of the road towards him. The three men stood in front of the victim and stopped him from walking past.

One of the men told the teenager to stand still before searching the victim and stealing his wallet, containing £40 by removing it from his jacket pocket. The three men then walked off up the hill.

The man who searched the victim is described as black, in his mid twenties, between 6ft 2ins and 6ft 3ins, with short black cropped hair and a short black unshaven beard and he spoke with a local accent. He wore dark clothes including a black leather jacket with a hood, dark grey jogging bottoms, dark shoes and black gloves which had a Nike tick logo near the thumb area.

The other two men are described as both black, in their mid twenties, between 6ft 2ins and 6ft 3ins and they were wearing dark clothing. One of them was wearing a smart looking coat made out of a black material which had brown stitching on the chest area in some form of logo.

The victim received no injuries and did not require hospital treatment.

Police are appealing for any witnesses to the offence or anyone who saw the offenders in the area at the time.

Anyone with any information should contact PC Gemma Brown at High Wycombe police station via the 24-hour Thames Valley Police Enquiry Line on 101.
