On Wednesday, September 18, the teenage boys were walking with a friend near Otter Pool when they were approached by three men wearing balaclavas.

The offenders, who were armed with knives, punched the two boys before stealing their mobile phones.

Both victims suffered bruising to their faces but did not need hospital treatment.

It happened at around 9pm.
