Two boys aged just 11 and 12 were threatened with a knife while cycling through Beckenham yesterday.

A "male youth" demanded their mobile phones in the high street shortly after 6pm.

The Met Police said "victim one" handed his phone over but the suspect did not want it, and therefore tried to steal the phone of "victim two".

However, the 11-year-old managed to recover his phone before before riding into Croydon Road Recreation Ground with his friend.

The suspect then followed and threatened the boys with a knife.

The 12-year-old offered his backpack before the suspect stole camera equipment.

However, the suspect didn’t stop there and went on to try and steal a bike from a third victim on the high street.
