Police are trying to track down two teenagers who tried to rob someone.

Officers are investigating an attempted robbery which took place at around 4.15pm on Monday October 12 in Links Drive on the outskirts of Borehamwood.

Police have been told a male, thought to have come from the train station, was threatened and that two people tried to steal his coat but they were unable to.

The suspects, described as white and around 17-years-old, fled in the direction of Allum Lane.

One of the teenagers was described as being 5ft 10 inches tall, wearing a long black coat which had distinctive red markings on it, with black tracksuit bottoms, black trainers and a black cap.

The other suspect was said to be wearing blue jeans and a grey hoodie.

Detective Constable Erik Gale, who is investigating the attempted robbery, said: "Thankfully, nothing was stolen, but we want to identify these people in case they attempt to re-offend.

"If you were in the area at the time, and believe you may have witnessed this incident or the events leading up to or immediately after it, please get in contact.

"It is believed that the two offenders followed the victim from Elstree and Borehamwood train station.

"If you were there around the time specified and recall seeing two men who match the description above, or remember seeing two men acting suspiciously, please let us know.

"Any information, even something that may seem relatively minor or insignificant, could be key to our investigation."
