THREE teenagers have been arrested after reports of a knife-point robbery.

The victim, also a teenager, was approached near to Mace Stores on on Ashingdon Road in Rochford and threatened just after 9pm last night (May 15).

He managed to get away unharmed but is, understandably, shaken by the incident.

Officers searched the area and arrested three teenage boys - two local, and one from Westcliff - on suspicion of robbery.

They remain in custody for questioning.

Anyone with information about this incident, or who may have CCTV or dash cam footage is asked to contact Essex Police on 101.

The crime reference number to quote is 42/91670/21.
