A TEENAGE girl was left with a black eye and scratches down her face after a robbery attempt in High Wycombe.

At 5pm on Sunday, February 2, the girl was walking to the local shop when three boys in their late teens approached her.

They demanded she give them her money but she refused and tried to walk around them.

One of the boys then grabbed her face and pulled her backwards, causing the victim to have a black eye and scratches across her face.

She then called for help. A passer-by approached and the boys ran away.

The first boy was described as Asian, around 17 to 18-years-old, around 5ft 6ins tall and had green eyes. He wore a black beanie hat and a long black coat.

The second boy is described as around 15 to 16 years old. He was around 5ft 3ins to 5ft 4ins tall, of a large build with braces on his teeth and wore a raincoat.

The third was aged from 17 to 18-years-old, had brown eyes and wore a grey hoodie and a dark coat.
