Do you recognise these men?

THESE three men (pictured) are wanted in connection with a robbery of a 16-year-old boy in Rotherham town centre.

The victim was walking along Howard Street between 9.50pm and 10pm on Sunday, October 1, when the three men threatened him and demanded he hand over his mobile phone and money.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: “The men are also reported to have punched the teenage boy in the face, causing him to fall to the floor, before members of the public came into view and the three suspects left the scene.

“The boy was not seriously injured.

“Police believe the men pictured could hold vital information and are asking for anyone who knows them, or for the individuals themselves, to make contact with police.”

Officers are also keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the robbery.

Call police on 101, quoting incident number 1191 of October 1 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
