Officers are describing the incident in Victoria Park as 'serious'.
The incident happened on 17/04/10 at 23.40-23.45.
Two men were walking across Victoria Park on the grassed area between the fountain and the football pitches, when a man ran up to them demanding their mobile phones. Both men refused to hand them over, and one was threatened with a large knife, similar to a kitchen knife.
The offender then took the mobile phone from the men he was threatening. After this a second offender joined the first, and kicked and punched the man that had been robbed.
They then threatened and searched the second man, and stole his phone.
The men managed to get away and ran off in the direction of the flats on Hillbrow Lane and onto Cleves Way.
The alarm was raised when they reached their homes.
The offenders are described as follows; white, 5'10" tall, wearing a black hooded top, and blue jeans and he spoke with a foreign accent and 5'5" tall, thin build, wearing a grey hooded top with a black logo on the chest.
"This is a serious incident and both men were threatened and subjected to violence, before their property stolen." Said DI Angie Hobbs. " I am keen to speak to anyone who was in the vicinity of the park during the time frame of the incident, or has information which will help this enquiry."
