A TEENAGER was robbed at knifepoint in Worcester on Saturday.

The 17-year-old was walking along the towpath of Lansdowne Road at around 11.45pm when he was approached by a man coming from the direction of Lansdowne Park, according to West Mercia Police.

It is alleged that the man grabbed the victim's T-shirt in the chest area and demanded money before pulling a knife out.

DC Cath Morgan said: "The offender has been described as white with a light tan and brown coloured hair, aged around 19 or 20 years old, six foot in height with a slim build. He was wearing dark clothing.

"Thankfully the victim has suffered just minor wounds. I want to speak to anyone who saw a man of this description or anybody who was acting suspiciously in this area of Worcester."

Anyone with information can call police on 101, quoting incident number 0002S 220614.

This area seems to have alot of 'goings on' at the moment WN are always reporting a incident within this area- maybe they should consider fitting some cctv- or having police officers regularly on foot- this is obviously a problem area and unless they do something to get the wind up people and show them enough is enough its only going to continue. I'm glad the victim was not seriously hurt but that victim is not going to have to live with the fear of what happened to them everyday. Catch them and scare the witts out of them! A eye for a eye!

Police officers? They're either on diversity training courses or pointing ray guns at motorists committing the heinous crime of driving 2 miles over the limit...

It says white with a light tan, doesn't necessarily mean he was British!

Trouble is when they catch these thugs they pat them on the back and say go and be a good boy!!!! So they are free to do it again and again. No justice
