Horror as girl, 12, is held at knifepoint and mugged by two thugs on the street – with cops urgently hunting man | The Sun

A 12-year-old girl was held at knife point and had her phone stolen during a daylight robbery in London.

She was reportedly mugged by two males on Hampstead Road in Camden, at around 8.30pm on Tuesday, July 11.

Detectives launched a probe and looked at CCTV which showed the suspects walking off, looking at the phone they had stolen.

A 16-year-old was arrested on suspicion of robbery but has been bailed while police investigate the mugging.

But the Metropolitan Police have since released a picture of a man they want to speak to in connection with the mugging.

He was wearing a light jacket, grey tracksuit bottoms, black trainers and was carrying a black rucksack.
