teenagers with knife rob young mum with baby in lockheath

Police have launched an investigation after a woman was robbed while out walking with her young son.
The young mum was walking back from a Locksheath play park with her 18-month-old on Sunday afternoon (24th April) just after 3pm when the incident took place.
Two young men described as wearing hoodies started shouting things about her little boy which she ignored. The pair then approached her with a penknife and told her to hand over her bag.
The woman who was scared as she had her little boy with her handed over a wallet and phone. The pair then ran away laughing.
The mum, who doesn’t want to be named, said the incident has left her very upset. She said, “I think they were just chancing it and having what they thought was a laugh but nonetheless I think anyone would have been terrified, especially with their child present.”
A spokesman for Hampshire and Isle of Wight Police said that they had received a report and have launched an investigation into the incident. They have urged anyone who witnessed the incident or who has any information to contact them on 101.
