Youth, 14, struck in Leighton Gardens and All Souls Avenue
A schoolboy robber who struck twice in Kensal Rise in one morning has received an eight-month referral order.
The 14-year-old, who can not be named for legal reasons, targeted two boys as they made their way to school on April 24.
The first victim, a 15-year-old, was in Leighton Gardens at around 7.53am when the robber approached him and searched his bag.
He had nothing of value so the robber walked off towards All Souls Avenue where he stopped an 11-year-old boy.
