PO­LICE have re­leased this efit pic­ture of a knife­man who mugged two young men as they walked through Vic­to­ria Park in Ash­ford.

The man ran up to them de­mand­ing their mo­bile phones just af­ter 11.40pm on April 17.

Both re­fused but one of the vic­tims, aged 17, was threat­ened with a large knife, sim­i­lar to a kitchen knife, and his phone was taken.

The teenager was then kicked and punched by a sec­ond man.

The other vic­tim was threat- ened and searched be­fore his phone was also stolen.

Their at­tack­ers were seen run­ning off in the di­rec­tion of the flats in Hill­brow Lane and onto Cleves Way.

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing to wit­nesses who may have seen the rob­bery or the of­fend­ers.

One is 5ft 10in and was wear­ing a black hooded top, blue jeans and spoke with a for­eign ac­cent, pos­si­bly east­ern Euro­pean.

The other is 5ft 5in, of thin build and was wear­ing a grey hooded top with a black logo on the chest.

DI Angie Hobbs said: “Both men were threat­ened and sub­jected to vi­o­lence be­fore their prop­erty was stolen.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is urged to call DI Hobbs on 01622 690690 or Kent Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111.
