Teenage boy robbed of e-scooter at knifepoint

POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a robbery in Grays which saw a teenage boy threatened with a knife before his electric scooter was taken.

The incident happened in King George’s Field, off Blackshots Lane at 4.30pm on Thursday 11 February.

The victim was at a set of swings between Bevan House and Morrison House when he was approached by a man who pulled out a knife and began running towards the victim.

The suspect then grabbed the victim’s electric scooter and left the area.
