Masked teen pushes child

A MASKED would-be robber pushed a child to the ground in Shipley Country Park last week.

The boys, aged ten and 11, were walking through the park near Osbourne’s pond at about 7.10pm last Thursday, when a teenager in a ski mask jumped out of shrubbery and demanded the youngest boy hand over his bike.

He then pushed the older boy to the ground and ran off through the park towards the visitors’ centre.

The boys described him to police as about 13-years-old, 5ft 8ins and of medium build, wearing black tracksuit bottoms and T-shirt, black Nike trainers and fingerless gloves.

A teenager was arrested in Aspley on Saturday and is being questioned by police.
