An 11-year-old boy was robbed by three teenagers as he rode his scooter through the Whitton area of Ipswich.

The victim was riding along Chaucer Road between 5.30pm and 6pm on Thursday, November 7, when he was approached by three older boys.

They asked him how much money he had on him and then demanded he hand over the cash.

The young boy felt threatened so handed over some loose change. One of the older boys then searched his rucksack, stealing a portable speaker he found inside.

The suspect who made the demands and searched the victim's bag is described as white, aged 15 to 16 and was wearing a black Nike tracksuit with the hood up.
