A teenager was left with facial injuries after he was attacked and robbed in Hatfield.
Today (Monday) police issued an appeal for information about the robbery, which happened in the early hours of Saturday, September 28.
The victim, an 18 year old man from Potters Bar, was walking toward the train station in Queensway when two men set on him.
It happened in woodland close to Goldings House between midnight and 12.15am, and two mobile phones were taken.
The attackers ran off toward the subway in Queensway.
One of the thieves is described as white, aged between 19 and 20, between 5ft 8ins and 5ft 9ins tall with dark brown cropped hair.
The second is described as white, aged between 19 and 20 years old, between 5ft 11ins and 5ft 12ins tall with brown cropped hair.
He was said to be wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and white trainers.
Det Con Beverley Larman, investigating, said: “This was a particularly nasty assault, with the victim receiving injuries to his face.
“We have been conducting a number of enquiries since this happened and believe there may have been people in the area when this happened who may have seen the men running from the scene.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Beverley Larman via the Herts Police non-emergency number, 101, quoting crime reference number B2/13/3042.
