Police are appealing for information following a report of a theft from two teenage boys.

The incident happened between midnight and 12.15am on Monday, August 27 on Wrotham Road, Meopham.

It is reported that two 15-year-old boys were walking from the direction of Istead Rise past a parade of shops when a white car stopped by them.

A man is said to have got out of the passenger side of the car, approached the boys, threatened them with what was believed to be a gun and demanded their phone and wallets.

The teenagers handed over their phones and some loose change. The suspect then got back into the car which drove away.

Neither of the teenagers were reported to have been injured in the incident.

The suspect is described as being a white male, around 5ft 8ins tall with stubble.

He wore dark coat with a fur hood and got out of a white car, possibly a Vauxhall Corsa which had black alloy wheels.

Officers are making a number of enquiries and reviewing CCTV opportunities.

If anyone has information they are asked to contact Kent Police on 01474 366149 quoting reference XY/054084/18.

Alternatively you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers in Kent anonymously on 0800 555 111.
