Two teenagers have been arrested after a boy was robbed at Bluewater Shopping Centre on Monday, February 17.

According to Kent Police, a teenage boy was robbed of his phone and a bag of belongings by a group of people at the shopping centre's bus station between 7:40pm and 7:50pm.

Officers conducted a search of the area, and by 8:20pm they had arrested two teenage boys, aged 17 and 16, on suspicion of robbery.

The victim was uninjured in the robbery, and security teams also managed to locate the property items which were reportedly stolen and then discarded.

Both suspects are currently in custody as police investigate.

Back in late December, another two teenagers were arrested after a number of people were allegedly robbed at knifepoint in the Dartford shopping centre.

The father of one of the boys, aged 15, who was robbed then posted a powerful video online, saying he was "disgusted" with how the shopping centre had dealt with the incident and the lack of compassion shown to the victims.

Over 10,000 people signed a petition to improve security levels at Bluewater, leading to the company to apologise and promise to review how it can improve how it supports its guests.

Anyone who witnessed the most recent incident and is yet to speak with officers is asked to call Kent Police on 01474 366149 quoting 46/30846/20.
