POLICE are probing two robberies in Bedworth on Sunday.

Around 4pm a teenage boy was walking in All Saint Square when he was approached by a group of men outside Greggs. He was pushed against the wall before his earphones and cash were stolen.

Around 10 minutes later in Leicester Street another teenage boy was approached by a group of men dressed in dark clothes and balaclavas. They pushed him off his bike before stealing it and his bank card. Both items were later recovered.

Neither boy was injured in the incidents.

Det Con Matt Hall from Warwickshire Police CID appealed to anyone who was in the area around the time witnessed anything to come forward.

“We would also appeal to any drivers who were in the area at the time and who may have dash cam to review the footage and get in touch if you believe it may be able to assist us.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
