DETECTIVES have released CCTV images of two men they would like to speak with as part of an ongoing investigation into a robbery on a train.
The incident occurred on a train travelling between Stevenage and Cuffley.
The victims, a group of five boys aged 13 and 14, were travelling home from Stevenage when they were approaching by a group of men.
Detective Constable Mark Sutherland, of the British Transport Police (BTP), said: "The victims were threatened by a group of about 10 older youths who demanded they hand over their mobile phones. The older youths then stole a phone off one of the teenagers before leaving the train."
Dc Sutherland said: "While the detail in the images isn't perfect we have been able to isolate stills of two men we would like to speak with in connection with what happened.
"This was a very intimidating experience for the victims, who were left frightened and shaken by the incident. I would encourage anyone who has information to come forward."
