Thames Valley Police is releasing a CCTV image of four people officers would like to speak to in connection with a robbery investigation in Milton Keynes.
At just after 7.20pm on Saturday (3/9), the victim, a 15-year-old boy, was with a friend inside the Central MK Shopping Centre on Midsummer Boulevard near to John Lewis.
He was approached and spoken to by a man who asked him to search on his phone for a Snapchat profile.
As the victim took his phone out, another male forcefully grabbed the phone from the victim.
A third person made a verbal threat before the victim’s bank card and Apple Airpod was stolen.
The offenders then made off towards the theatre district in Central Milton Keynes.
