THUGS attacked a teenage boy and stole his Scream mask on Halloween night.


The 15-year-old victim was walking along Princess Elizabeth Way in Hester's Way, opposite the Shell garage, when he was attacked between 8.30 and 8.45pm on Wednesday.


Two men dressed in black approached from behind, pulled him to the ground and assaulted him.


They then stole the mask – which is a scary white face and black hood worn by killers in the popular Scream horror movies – from his pocket.


The boy suffered minor injuries in the incident.


Anyone with any information about the robbery is asked to contact Gloucestershire Police on 101, quoting incident number 473 of October 31.


You can also give information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or going to crimestoppers-uk.org

    These people sound like retards! Most street attacks contain a mobile phone or wallet being stolen (something of value), not a ruddy scream mask! Idiots.

    Isn't 15 a bit old to be going trick or treating? But so many a**holes around nowadays!!

    The headline makes a bit of a mockery of what sounds like a traumatic and potentially dangerous attack.

    Well how big & clever of them. Not. Two men against a single 15-year-old. Scumbags. Hope you get what you deserve.
