After being approached by officers, they ran off, but two of the group - including a 15 year-old - were subsequently arrested nearby.

Enquiries are ongoing.

Haringey Police's Insp Paul Dwyer said: "My officers are patrolling Muswell Hill but I would continue to encourage students to report incidents to police so we can swiftly act upon them just like this one."

"Robbery is a priority for Haringey Police and we are proactively out in plain clothes and uniform to deal with any such offences."
