Four youths are on police bail following an alleged attempted robbery in Exmouth.
Two 17-year-old boys were left ‘upset and shaken’ after purportedly being threatened by a group of people who demanded money.
Devon and Cornwall Police say the incident is alleged to have happened in Withycombe Road around 10pm last Friday (September 6).
DC Ailsa Mason said: “The offenders left empty-handed but the victims were left understandably upset and shaken by the matter.
“The victims spoke to a group of four men and women around the time of the incident who would have witnessed the offence. They are described to be around 18-years-old and one of the men was wearing a floral pattered shirt. They could have vital information we are seeking.
