Hove onesie robbers steal iPad from boy

A 12-year-old boy was put in headlock and robbed by two men dressed in onesies, police have said.

The boy had stopped to play on a rope swing behind Hangleton Way in Hove on his way back from school when the pair came up behind him on Wednesday.

One man put him in a headlock while the other searched his bag and took his iPad, a force spokesman said.

One was dressed in a black onesie and the other in a white one. Officers are appealing for witnesses.
