The incident took place on Monday 17th April at about 4.40pm at the bus stop on the H2 between the Greenleys and Hodge Lea estates, close to the junction with Hodge Lea Lane.

The victim, a 16-year-old boy, was standing at the bus stop using his phone when he was approached by two men.

One of them demanded to be given the phone, and the other then assaulted him.

The offenders then took the phone and ran away up the steps to the right-hand side of the bus stop and over the bridge into Hodge Lea.

The victim sustained a head injury as a result of the incident for which he required hospital treatment.

He has since been discharged.

The man who assaulted the victim is an Asian man, aged between 17 and 20, about 5ft 10ins tall with a skinny build.

He was wearing a grey hoodie with the hood up and a black jacket over the top of it.

The second man was also Asian, aged between 17 and 20, and of a similar height as the first offender.

He is described as having a large nose and was wearing a red hooded top which was pulled up over his head, and a jacket.
