Three Teens Robbed At Gunpoint In Gun-Controlled London

posted on August 2, 2016

Three teens were doing a very teen thing—playing Pokémon Go—when they were robbed at gunpoint in a park. The boys, ages 15, 16 and 18, were approached by three masked youths who demanded their phones and other possessions. 

“These were really shocking attacks on young people walking around a much-loved park,” said investigating officer Kevin Yeung. Apparently Yeung was surprised by the use of a gun, as the robbery took place in heavily gun-controlled London. "Robberies where a gun is shown or indicated are very rare," the officer noted, albeit incorrectly. 

This latest incident comes amid a rise in violent crime using firearms, with London recording a 10-percent increase over last year in crimes committed with guns. And it means that despite the fact that handguns are basically banned for law-abiding citizens in England, criminals—no matter their age—are still able to easily get their hands on guns.
