Posted on 19th June 2014

Police in Derby are appealing for information about a robbery in the city centre on Monday evening (June 16).

At about 10.10pm a 21-year-old man was walking home along the footbridge near the Jury’s Inn hotel when he saw three men walking towards him.  Two of them walked past him but the third approached him and threatened him with a small kitchen knife.  The man handed over his phone and the offender and his friends made off into the city centre.

The offender is described as being in his late teens or early twenties, of skinny build and about 5’ 8” tall.  He had very short or shaven fair hair and had dry scabby skin below his nose.  He wore a fluorescent green or yellow top and a dark baseball cap on backwards.

Anyone who has any information should contact the police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
