Police are appealing for information after a 13-year-old was robbed by a messy haired teen in Great Horton.

The robbery took place on Clayton Road on Sunday afternoon, and saw the teen steal an iPad and mobile phone.

At about 3.30pm the boy was walking towards Cemetery Road when he was barged from behind by the suspect, forcing him to drop his iPad.

The offender picked up the tablet and demanded the victim hand over his mobile phone before running down Clayton Road towards the back of the Paradise Green post office.

The suspect is described as white, between 15 and 19 years old, between 5ft 9 and 5ft 11ins tall, and of stocky build.

He was wearing a light grey hooded jogging outfit with stripes and had messy blond hair, which was short at the sides and longer on top.

Detective Inspector Alan Flynn, of Bradford District CID, said: "This offence occurred on a busy road in broad daylight, so it is likely someone will have seen the suspect. We would also like to hear from anyone who has been offered an iPad computer or a Samsung mobile phone at a reduced price."

Anyone with information can contact Bradford District CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
