A TEENAGE boy was stabbed in the leg for his mobile phone when a vicious mob attacked him in Kentish Town.

Around 7.30pm, the 14-year-old victim was walking along Talacre Road when he turned to see three boys behind him. The three were joined by others, all believed to be of Somali origin, as they demanded the boy hand over his phone. He was punched in the head and his glasses thrown on the floor. The victim escaped but was caught and attacked again. He felt a sharp pain in his thigh and realised he had been stabbed. He was taken to hospital but has since been discharged. The suspects were black youths and wore dark clothing. Anyone with information should call the police on 020-7404 1212.
