A teenager was attacked and robbed while walking through Harpenden one evening last month.
The incident occurred at around 9.10pm on Wednesday June 9 when the victim was walking along Carlton Road, towards Station Road.
He was approached by an unknown man who reportedly pushed the boy against a car before stealing his bag.
Det Con Lewis Allingham, who is investigating the robbery, said: “This was an aggressive and unprovoked attack on a teenager, who understandably has been left shaken up following the incident.
"I know that some time has passed since the robbery took place, but we are ensuring that we follow all possible lines of enquiry.
