Police are asking for the public’s help to identify four men they wish to speak to in connection with a robbery outside JD Sports in Lakeside Shopping Centre.
At 7.15pm on June 30, four suspects approached the victim, who is a 13-year-old boy, and stole his mobile phone from his pocket, worth an estimated £200. The victim was uninjured.
All four suspects were black men, aged between 16-20. One was wearing a hat and another was wearing a black body warmer.
Investigating officer, Dc Mona Seldon, said: “I would ask people to look closely at the CCTV stills to see if they recognise the people pictured. Any amount of information may help our investigation, so I urge you to get in touch.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Dc Mona Seldon at the Thurrock CID target team on 0300 333 4444 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
