Teenagers robbed a debt collector

Two teenagers assaulted a debt collector and robbed him of 600 £ near Harrow Road on Wednesday.

The two robbers were described by witnesses being aged between 16 and 17 and very slight in build.

It was few minutes after 7pm, when the victim had been visiting a house in Sixth Avenue to collect the money for a court fine.

When he came out and was walking to his car a few metres away, he was assaulted by the two youths. They were hooded and covering their faces with scarves. They punched the man and pushed him to the ground, kicking him on the head and in the face.

The debt collector was saved by a passer-by , who called out when he realised what was happened. The two robbers ran away along Market Street. The debt collector, aged 40, was bleeding from his right ear, and mouth, and looked visibly shocked.

The police and an ambulance arrived within minutes, giving the man first aid before he was taken to hospital. The case is under police investigation.
