The police received a call for help to an alleged case of assault that took place at a back lane in Arab Street on 4 August at about 9.20pm.

The quartet had allegedly assaulted the two kids and demanded their phones and money, according to the police’s preliminary investigations.

The victims then complied out of fear and gave them cash of about $20 and their phones to the alleged robbers, who then fled the scene.

Both victims suffered injuries including bruises and cuts.
