A 15-YEAR-OLD paperboy was attacked by knife-wielding robbers just minutes after finishing his round.
The youngster was walking down a snicket between Bradley Boulevard and Well Grove in Sheepridge when he was confronted by three youths at 2.50pm on Saturday.
One was carrying a knife.
He held it to the victim's throat and demanded cash.
He said he did not have any. The knifeman then held the weapon to his side and again ordered him to hand money over.
A group of people walked past the top of the snicket and the thieves walked away towards Bracken Square.
All are African- Caribbean youths. The knifeman is aged 16 to 18, 5ft 8ins and slim with short black hair.
He wore dark clothes.
Anyone with information should contact Det Sgt Dave Campbell on 01484 436582.
