Police are investigating the mugging of an 11-year-old boy in Bradford.

The victim was on Parkside Road in West Bowling at 2.30pm on Sunday when he was approached from behind by a man who pushed him to the floor and demanded his mobile phone.

The suspect removed the phone from the boy’s pocket and ran into the nearby cemetery.

He is described as white, in his late teens, slim with a drawn appearance and black hair. He was wearing a dark hooded top and dark bottoms.

At the time, the victim was helped by a passing member of the public who attempted to find the suspect.

Officers say they are particularly interested in speaking to this person as they may have seen the individual involved and could assist in their inquiries.

Anyone who has information is being asked to contact PC Ailsa Jackson at Bradford South CID via 101 or CrimeStoppers on 0800 555111.
