Four youths attacked in West Leederville, police looking for suspects

YOUTHS had to jump a fence to escape being attacked by robbers on a West Leederville path about 4am on February 25.

“All four ran, and three got over the fence, but one didn’t, and he tripped before the robber stood over him and demanded his valuables or he would bash him,” Senior Sergeant Craig Davis said.

The four mates had been walking to Leederville on the path near Thomas Road when they became aware they were being followed by two men.

Sgt Davis said one of the men threw a rock which hit the back of one of the mates, before the men demanded valuables.

An uninjured Stirling youth (17) gave his attacker his wallet and watch after he failed to jump the fence.

One attacker was described as dark-skinned, aged about 17, slim and wore a black baseball cap, red T-shirt and black trousers.

The other attacker was described as dark-skinned.
