Two teens have been charged with robberies in Gravesend and Medway.

One 16-year-old and one 17-year-old boy, both from Gravesend, have been charged with two robberies and they appeared at Dartford Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.

One of the victims was an 80-year-old woman, who was surrounded by a group of youngsters in Gordon Place, Gravesend, on the afternoon of September 25 before one of them allegedly snatched her shopping bags and ran off.

The bag was recovered but the pensioner’s purse, which contained a mobile phone and £10, is still missing.

The second incident is alleged to have taken place between 10pm and 10.30pm two days later in alleyway by Chatham railway station.

A 23-year-old man was walking down the alleyway when was hit on the back of his head and his bag was stolen. The bag was searched and his mobile phone taken.

Both teenagers have been released on bail. Another 17-year-old, also from Gravesend, was also arrested on suspicion of robbery and bailed pending further investigation until November 13.
