Teenagers arrested after E-scooters stolen in Warwick

THREE teenagers have been arrested after electronic scooters were stolen in Warwick town centre.

Officers were called to a report of a robbery close to Sainsbury’s on Coten End shortly after 6.15pm on Tuesday (July 19).

A group is understood to have been threatened by another group with a knife before three E-scooters were taken.

The three victims were uninjured but left shaken by the incident.

The area was searched and officers made three arrests shortly afterwards.

A 16-year-old boy from Birmingham was arrested on suspicion of robbery and possession of a knife while a 14-year-old boy from Birmingham was arrested on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon and robbery.

A second 16-year-old boy from Birmingham was arrested on suspicion of robbery and possession of a class B/C drug.

All three have been bailed until next month.

The stolen scooters were subsequently recovered. A blade and a quantity of what is believed to be cannabis were seized.

Enquiries are ongoing and Warwickshire Police is keen to speak to anyone who can help with its investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to report it online quoting incident number 332 of 19 July or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
