Date published: 05 August 2022

Police are asking for the public's help in identifying the perpetrators of a personal robbery on Hollins Road in Oldham on May 4, 2022 at 15.20hrs.

The victim sustained a beating and was left with facial injuries in the robbery – conducted in broad daylight and on a busy road – in which the offenders stole personal belongings and the victim’s jacket.

CCTV captured the offence and GMP have identified these two youngsters, who are believed to be locals, as persons of interest and are keen to talk to them.

One had a black jacket with a distinctive design on the arm, whilst the other appeared to be in a school uniform.

If you recognise the two boys, contact the NCT office at Oldham Police Station on 0161 856 4521 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
