Man Robbed At Knifepoint
25 June 2011, 07:42
Thames Valley Police is investigating a knifepoint robbery in which a man had his wallet searched and his mobile phone taken from him.
At about 12.30am on Wednesday (June 23rd), a man was walking in the underpass between Sainsbury’s and Oldbrook in H6 Childs Way, when he was approached by two men, one of whom threatened him with a kitchen knife and demanded his wallet. The wallet was searched and handed back to the man.
The man’s mobile phone rang, which prompted the man with the knife to demand for it to be handed over.
The man handed over his phone, a black HTC mobile, and the offenders made off in direction of Oldbrook.
The victim was not injured during the incident.
The man with the knife is black, 5ft 8ins, very slim, with short hair and a beard covering only his chin. He was wearing dark denim jeans, a dark coloured t-shirt and rubber or plastic gloves.
The second man is black, 5ft 8ins, slim, and had plaited hair close to his skull. He wore a silver chain.
Both men spoke to each other in English and another language.
