Witnesses are being sought after two women with young children were robbed at Lickey Hills Country Park last Friday evening.

The women were visiting the country park near Warren Lane with their children – two 8 year olds and a 3 month old baby – on the evening of Friday 1st July between 5.30 and 6.30pm.

They were approached by two men who demanded the women handed over valuables, taking a mobile phone, wedding ring, a gold chain and a handbag containing makeup and a large amount of money, before running into the nearby woods.

The offenders are described as Asian men, both aged in their early 20’s, each about 5’8” tall with a slim build.

One man was described as wearing grey tracksuit bottoms and a grey hooded top. He was believed to be holding a small bladed object during the incident.

The other man was described as wearing a dark hooded top and black trousers, possibly jeans.
