A CHILD thought to be aged as young as 11 is being sought after an incident involving two foreign students in Salisbury.

The youngster, who is described as being about 5ft 7ins tall with short, sandy hair, is alleged to have tried to rob the two young students of their mobile phones on Kelsey Hill.

The incident, next to an alleyway near the Co-Op, at about 9pm on Friday, April 25, has prompted police to appeal for potential witnesses.

The offender is said to have been wearing a black hooded top with red embroidery and baggy black combat trousers, which appeared over-sized. He is white and of slim build.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Nigel Porter of the priority crime team on 101, extension 896 or 897.
