Man put in headlock during Wythall robbery
8:30am Wednesday 21st August 2013 in Local
A STREET robbery took place in Wythall at about 11pm on Monday, August 19.
The 19-year-old victim was walking along Gorsey Lane. As he approached the junction of Alcester Road, a black hatchback car, with the partial registration number ERH, drove past him very slowly, before parking just in front of him.
Two men got out of the vehicle and approached the victim. One of them grabbed him round the neck and placed him in a headlock, forcing his finger into the victim’s eye and demanding his money and phone.
The second man then searched the victim, taking his wallet containing £20, a driving licence, bank card, keys and Samsung Galaxy S3 mini mobile phone worth £400.
The first man then pulled the victim to the floor before they ran back to the waiting car and it drove off.
Both offenders were in their late teens to early 20s.
The first man was white, approximately 5ft 10ins tall, of stocky build, and wearing a black baseball cap and a black waterproof style jacket.
The second man was mixed race, approximately 6ft 2ins tall, of slim to medium build, wearing a black baseball cap with a silver circle on the flipside and wearing a black jacket.
The victim sustained a scratch to his neck but did not need medical treatment.
