Detectives are appealing for witnesses following a robbery in Cannock.
At around 8.50pm on Wednesday (8 June) it was reported that two males approached a teenage girl as she walked along an alleyway off Remington Drive.
After grabbing her arm from behind, they made threats and showed a sharp object before stealing a vape, wallet and mobile phone.
Thankfully she was not harmed but left shaken by the incident.
Officers attended and arrested a 15-year-old boy and a 16-year-old boy, both from Walsall, on suspicion of robbery. They have since been released on conditional bail.
Enquiries are on-going and any witnesses or anyone with information is asked to message Staffordshire Police on Facebook or Twitter or call 101 quoting incident number 807 of 8 June. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Detectives are particularly keen to hear from anyone with relevant CCTV or dash-cam footage.
