Three robbers, thought to be several years older than the victim, struck in an alleyway near Addington High School in Fairchildes Avenue at around 10am yesterday.

London Ambulance Service sent one ambulance crew and single responder after receiving reports of an assult.

They took the boy to Croydon University Hospital for treatment.
