Six boys arrested in connection with Cowes robbery

Police on the Isle of Wight have arrested six boys from London in connection with a suspected robbery in Cowes. 

Officers say three teenage boys were assaulted and robbed on Cross Street by another group of boys at around 7pm last night (Tuesday 20th August).

Police say mobile phones were stolen from two of the victims and one of them was assaulted suffering minor injuries.  

The suspects then made off in the direction Shooters Hill.

Detective Constable Julia Parker from Hampshire Police said:

“We’re appealing to anyone who was in the Cross Street area of Cowes at the time of the incident to get in touch with us.  

“Did you witness what happened? 

“We still need to speak to the teenager who was assaulted during this incident who left the scene before we arrived.
