Officers would like to appeal to a man who we believe may be able to assist our investigation in relation to an incident that happened at Leigh Road Recreation Ground by The Bandstand at around 4.20pm on Saturday 13 April.

A 14-year-old boy was approached by two other teenage boys who demanded money from him. The 14-year-old boy refused to hand anything over and ran off towards his father who was nearby.

Nothing was stolen. The boys chased him but then left the area when the boy went to his father.

The boys have been described as aged 16 or 17-years-old both wearing hooded tops with the hoods up. One of the boys was slimmer than the other and had light coloured hair, the other had a stockier build.

After the incident, a man approached the boy’s father and spoke with him. We are really keen to speak to this person. Was this you?

Sergeant Richard Knight said: “If you are the person that saw this incident and spoke to the boy’s dad, please get in touch.”
