A 12 year old boy was robbed of his trick or treat booty at knifepoint last night.

The incident occurred at 7.30pm when the boy made his way home along Homefield Road with his two friends. 

He was stopped by two youths who asked him what he had in his bag.  When he replied sweets, the first suspect told him to "Hand them over or you'll know what will happen."  It was then that the pair produced a black handled kitchen knife and a hockey stick.

The first suspect is described as a black youth, aged around 15 years, 5'6" in height and wearing a dark grey hooded top.  The second suspect is also black, aged around 13 years, 5'4" wearing a short black Nike jacket.

Police are the public to call DC Stuart Coutin on 020 8247 5940 if they have any information regarding this crime.
