Police are appealing for witnesses who can help clarify an incident involving occupants of a car and a group of teenagers in Sidley, Bexhill.
Around 2pm on Friday (December 28) a group of teenagers on bikes were approached by the three occupants of a small black car in London Road, Sidley, at the junction with Hillside Road, and were asked for money. One of the teenagers had £20 taken from him before the car drove away.
Detective Constable Tess Warren said: "We would like to hear from anyone who saw what happened near the cash machine close to the Best One store to establish a clear picture of the incident.
"The people in the car are all described as white. One was a boy aged around 16, about 5' 10", with short shaven black hair, wearing a tracksuit with a white stripe.
"A girl was also aged around 16 with dark brown hair in a ponytail, skinny and of petite build, about 5' 4" and wearing a crop top in grey with mesh material at the bottom.
"The third was a woman in her 60’s with short brown bobbed hair, wearing a cardigan.
"Anyone who can help is asked to contact us either online or by calling 101 quoting 676 of 28/12."
