Robbers assault man and steal his mobile phone

Posted on 4th December 2013

Two men assaulted a man in a recreation ground and took his mobile phone.

The 19-year-old victim went for a walk at around 1am on Monday, November 18 and was sat on a bench in Markeaton Recreation Ground, near to St Anne’s Close, Derby, when he was approached by two men.

They asked him for the time and he checked his mobile phone before walking off. The men followed him and demanded his phone. When he refused, one of the men punched him in the face while the other stole his phone.

The robbers are both white, aged about 20, slim and around 5ft 9ins tall with Liverpool accents. One wore a blue hooded jacket and dark tracksuit trousers while the other had a thin moustache and wore a white hooded top and dark tracksuit trousers.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
