Police are appealing for public assistance following two robberies in Newcastle at the weekend.

About 2.15pm on Saturday (1 May 2021), a 23-year-old man was seated in a park on Lexington Parade, Kotara, when he was approached by three unknown men.

The group demanded the man’s phone, wallet and backpack before he was punched in the face.

The group then left the scene before one of the men approached a 15-year-old boy on Park Avenue and threatened him with a knife.

He demanded his phone before fleeing with the remainder of the group.

Both incidents were reported to police a short time later and officers from Newcastle City Police District commenced an investigation.
