A TEENAGER was robbed and punched as he was making a mobile phone call at a bus stop on Monday night.

The 17-year-old was at the bus shelter by PJ's Chip Shop in Northgate Street at 10.40pm when he was approached by three males.

As he was making a call they threatened him and made the youth hand over his phone. The gang then repeatedly punched the 17-year-old around the head.

One of the attackers was white, 5ft 9in, about 18-years-old with short dark hair and was wearing a dark coloured hooded top. Another of the gang was white, 6ft, with short light coloured hair and had a light coloured hooded top.
