A NEW Milton teenager has been arrested in connection with a knifepoint robbery.


The 17-year-old is the third held by officers after a boy, also aged 17, was threatened with a knife and had his bike stolen when he was approached by three people on a footpath near the Littledown Estate in Bournemouth last Friday afternoon.

After searching the area, officers arrested a 15-year-old and an 18-year-old, both from Bournemouth, on suspicion of robbery. They were released on bail.

Officers are continuing to investigate the incident and have appealed for information. They are particularly keen to hear from two women who spoke to the victim after the incident and may have information to help the investigation. One was blonde, and the other was walking her black dog in the area.

Contact Dorset Police on 101, quoting occurrence number 55210010929 or ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
