A teenager was hit in the face after two men asked if he had any cash notes he would exchange for coins.

The boy was walking through Kennedy Park in Slough on February 17 when he was approached by two men at around 3pm.

One of the men asked the teen if he had any notes in exchange for coins, but as he took a note out of his bag, he was hit in the face.

The second man then grabbed hold of the boy by his shoulder and tried to take his bag off, but the teenager managed to break free and run away.

He suffered swelling to his face after the attack but he did not need to go to hospital.

One of the men is described as being a black male, around 6ft tall and aged 16 or 17. He was of a medium to skinny build, with black hair which is believed to have been styled in dreadlocks. He was dressed in a waist length black puffa coat, a hooded top, and grey tracksuit bottoms.

Police have released a CCTV image of a man they think may be able to help with their investigation into the robbery.

Investigating officer, DC Helena Moore, of Slough police station, said: “We are releasing this CCTV image of a person who we believe might have vital information about this incident, and we would like to speak to them.

“This was a frightening experience for the victim, who thankfully got away. He did not require hospital treatment.

“I am appealing to anyone who recognises the person in the image, or any witnesses to the incident itself, which occurred during daylight hours in a public area. I believe there is a chance someone will have seen something.
