Police issue appeal after 13-year-old boy is robbed in Bradford


Police are appealing for information after a 13-year-old boy was robbed in Bradford.

At about 3.30pm on Sunday, May 4, the boy was walking along Clayton Road towards Cemetery Road when he was barged from behind by the suspect, forcing him to drop his iPad.

The offender picked up the computer and demanded the victim hand over his mobile phone.

He then ran off down Clayton Road towards the back of the Paradise Green post office.

The suspect is described as white, between 15 and 19-years-old, between 5 ft 9 ins and 5 ft 11 ins, and of stocky build.

He was wearing a light grey hooded jogging outfit with stripes and had messy blond hair, which was short at the sides and longer on top.

Detective Inspector Alan Flynn, of Bradford District CID, said: “This offence occurred on a busy road in broad daylight, so it is likely someone will have seen the suspect.

“We would also like to hear from anyone who has been offered an iPad computer or a Samsung mobile phone at a reduced price.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC 419 Livesley at Bradford District CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
