|Stolen: a red cornet during a mugging on Wyresdale Road|
Around 12.40am on Friday 18th December, a 17-year-old male was walking on Wyresdale Road when he was approached by three men. One of them demanded the teenager hand over his bag while a second man tried to grab the teenager from behind.
He managed to run away but fell over, however after being pushed into a bush by two of the men he pushed tow of his attackers off and managed to get away.
It is believed a bag belonging to the victim was taken during the incident, with a red cornet, pictured, stolen.
The first male is described as aged 20, of slim build, with a slim face, large nose, wearing a grey Adidas tracksuit with blue stripes.
The second male is believed to be white, 5ft 10in tall, of slim build wearing a blue raincoat and the third man is described as white, with thick black eyebrows and stubble.
Detective Constable Sam Johnson, of Lancaster and Morecambe CID, said: “This was a distressing and frightening incident for the person involved.
“We would appeal to anyone with information about the men described or recognises the instrument pictured to contact officers immediately.”
