Bristol Post - - NEWS -

A TEENAGE girl was threat­ened with a knife in a failed rob­bery in a cul-de-sac in east Bris­tol.

The 17-year-old vic­tim was walk­ing through Crates Close in Kingswood at 8.30pm on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 2, when she was ap­proached by three men.

All three of them had their hoods up and their faces con­cealed.

One of the trio threat­ened the girl with a knife and de­manded that she hand over her valu­ables.

Thank­fully some­one walk­ing down the road dis­turbed the three of­fend­ers and they fled the scene empty-handed.

The first man is de­scribed as 6ft tall, of skinny build, be­tween 18 and 19 years old and with a Bris­to­lian ac­cent.

The sec­ond man is de­scribed as be­ing 6ft 2ins tall, of skinny build, roughly the same age as the first and also with a Bris­to­lian ac­cent.

The third of­fender is de­scribed as white, of skinny build, aged 15 to 16, and again with a Bris­to­lian ac­cent.

He was wear­ing a red hoodie, which may have been Ralph Lau­ren, and jeans.

Wit­nesses are asked to call po­lice on 101 and quote crime ref­er­ence num­ber 5218 220 997.
