TWO teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of robbing a man in Newbury. 

The 19-year-old man was walking in Enborne Road at about 9.30pm on Friday 20 May.

He was approached by three men, who assaulted him before stealing his wallet, phone and tobacco.

Two 16-year-old boys, both from Reading, have been arrested on suspicion of robbery and released on police bail until July 3.

    Did the crime take place in an area where the cctv used to be? or in a place where there has never been cctv?

    I hope that, if convicted, that the assailants are given a suitably harsh sentence and banned from the town.

      Probably unlikely on past performance; suspended sentence perhaps & some community service.

    Was the recently reactivated CCTV used to identify these thugs?
