A TEENAGER was targeted in a street robbery close to Bournemouth University’s Talbot Campus.

The 16-year-old boy was attacked as he walked through an alleyway towards McWilliam Close.

A man grabbed the boy from behind, put him in a headlock and stole his watch and mobile phone.

The incident happened on Wednesday, June 25, at 8.10pm, in the alleyway linking McWilliam Close to Fern Barrow.

Detectives, who say the victim was uninjured in the attack, have now released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.

They only released this information today.

Detective Constable Ian Allen, of Bournemouth and Poole CID, said: “Following enquiries I am now able to release a CCTV image of a man we wish to speak with. It is possible that he has information that can assist the investigation.

“I urge the man pictured, or anyone who recognises him, to contact police as soon as possible. All calls are treated in the strictest confidence.”

Students should spend their free time learning Ju Jitsu instead of sharing bongs and doing shrooms and china white.
And that goes for the boys too.

The kid's 16, he's not a uni student he just happened to be near a university when he got back. He probably spends his free time fantasising about girls or boys he fancies but can't find the words to tell them and playing computer games.
