Information is being sought after a mobile phone was stolen during a robbery in Broadstairs.

Between 9.30pm and 10pm on Tuesday 4 May 2021, three teenagers were in a car park near a basketball court in Callis Court Road, when they saw two men and a woman.

The woman held back, while the two men reportedly approached and threatened one of the teenagers with a knife and made all of them empty their pockets. During the incident, items including a black Nike jacket, a pair of trainers, some cigarettes and a black iPhone X were stolen.

All three victims were able to run away from the suspects, who were then seen to leave in the direction of Grange Road.

Officers attended the scene where the trainers were recovered.

The first suspect was described as being between forty and fifty years old and wore a faux leather jacket. He had dark slicked-back hair.

The second suspect was aged between seventeen and twenty years old and wore a white top, grey jacket and jeans. Both were described as being of Middle Eastern appearance.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery should call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting 46/75245/21.
