TEENS stole cash and a phone from a man they menaced in Wigan.

Police today appealed for information about the mugging which happened at around 4.45am on Saturday April 19 as the 24-year-old victim walked home from a party along Victoria Street.

Two young men approached him and asked for a light. When he explained he didn’t smoke, one then demanded his white Samsung Galaxy Mini mobile.

Due to the yob’s aggressive manner, the victim handed it over. One of the teens then demanded his wallet which was snatched from his hand. The pair fled into Alexandra Park.

They were white, 16 to 18 years old and around 5ft 5ins tall. One had short brown hair and the other hand short black hair.

Both wore dark clothes. Anyone with details should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
