A man was threatened by two men armed with a knife and airgun and forced to handover his mobile phone.  

The 18-year-old man was walking in Kiln Road, Hadleigh, at around 10.45pm yesterday. He was walking opposite to the Sunny Side Up tanning salon when he was approached by two suspects and threatened with a knife and what was believed to be an airgun.

The men demanded the victim to hand over his mobile before pushing him into a lamppost and stealing his bag.

The victim suffered a minor head injury and did not require medical treatment.

The suspects ran from the scene towards Rayleigh Road.

The first suspect has been described as being white, in his late teens, around 5'10ft tall with dark hair. He was wearing a black Montcler coat.

The second suspect has been described as being white, around 6'1ft tall and wore a black hooded jacket.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Basildon CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
