Man Gets Knife Wound During Robbery

A man's been robbed after getting a cut to his hand whilst defending himself from a man with a knife.

It happened at about 11.55pm last night (Sunday 18 September).  The victim was walking home from a friend's house. He walked from Barn Road onto Lothian Street, across Orchard Street to Exeter Street in Norwich.

He noticed an unknown man tying his shoelaces beside a tree next to the Ferndale Business centre. As he approached this location the man produced a knife. The victim in defending himself sustained a cut to his hand. Two other men then appeared from around the corner, also with knives, and demanded the victim's phone. The victim gave them his two mobile phones and the three suspects ran back along Exeter St and turned left onto Orchard Street and out of view.

The offender is described as white male, five foot, seven inches to five foot, eight inches tall, of slim build, aged 17 to 18 years old. He was wearing a black coat with hood up over his head and the material is described as being a fluffy look but not in texture. He had a black scarf over his face with white pattern on it, he had large black bushy eyebrows and his trainers were black in colour.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has knowledge of it should contact DC David Walker at Bethel Street Polcie Station on 0845 4564567 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
