The youths, aged 17 and 18, were walking along Saddleworth Road towards West Vale at 1am on Friday when a dark blue Vauxhall Corsa pulled up. The driver and the front seat passenger got out of the car and assaulted the teens before escaping with their belongings.

Both suffered face injuries and the 17-year-old needed hospital treatment.

The driver of the Corsa was described as white, between 19 and 22, 6ft, lean with short blond hair.
