A 15-YEAR-OLD boy had his iPhone taken after being threatened with a penknife in a robbery in Coffee Hall.

At about 8.10pm on Friday, the boy was walking home along the Redway close to Robins Hill and had just checked the time on his phone.

He was approached by a man coming from the opposite direction on a bike who stopped and threatened him with a small penknife, demanding he hand over his iPhone.

The victim did so and the offender left in the direction of H8, towards the Coffee Hall roundabout.

The offender is white, around 18-years-old, 5ft 10ins, and slim. He was wearing a black hooded jacket and navy blue shiny nylon tracksuit bottoms.

He was riding a black, mans mountain bike, with part of the frame bright yellow.

The iPhone is a black 8GB mark 2.

The victim did not suffer any injuries.
