Two 15 year old boys refused to be intimidated by a pair of would thieves during an attempted robbery on Chiswick Back Common.

The incident happened on Thursday 4th October at 14.55 close to Rocks Lane football and tennis courts. The boys were walking across the park together when two male suspects approached them.

The first man asked the boys if they knew anyone from South Acton before he demanded "Give me your money".

Although the victims were taken aback, they refused to hand over any money and tried to carry on walking. The first suspect then became aggressive demanding their money whilst trying to push the victims into a corner of the park. The suspect also threatened to stab the victims if they did not produce money.

The victims managed to run away along the Chiswick High Road pursued by the two suspects. The boys were shaken by the incident, but not harmed.
