Boy Bitten By Coventry Robbers

A 15-year-old lad was set upon by three men who bit him while they robbed him of his jewellery in a Coventry street yesterday.

The incident happened in Quorn Way, Willenhall at 4.05pm. The lad was walking along the road when three men approached him from behind.

He was punched to the back of the head and pulled to the floor.

He was then kicked to the head and his bracelet was stolen. One of the offenders then bit the lad's finger and stole the ring that he was wearing.

All three offenders were Asian; there is a detailed description of only one of the offenders. He is about 6ft 3ins, slim build, with short black hair and is in his late teens. He was wearing a gold bracelet and a ring on his left arm/hand.

The jewellery they stole was worth about 200. The lad suffered bruising and a lump to his right eye and a cut to his finger.
