Fourteen-year-old mugged in broad daylight at Mt Austin

A TEENAGE boy has been left shaken but uninjured after a daylight mugging in Bourke Street on Tuesday.

The 14-year-old was walking on the footpath opposite The Haven at about 4pm when he was approached by a man, who demanded he hand over his watch.

The teen complied and the mugger then demanded cash. A small amount was handed over and the offender fled down Bourke Street.

He is described as being aged between 16 and 20, of Aboriginal appearance and about 170cm tall.
