|Chef mugged on Devonshire Road|
Leaving party spoiled after assault by three robbers
A local chef's leaving party was spoiled when he was robbed on the way home in the early hours of Sunday May 1st.
The incident took place on Devonshire Road at around 4.25am. The 28 year old man was walking on his own talking to a friend on a mobile phone when he was approached by a group of three youths. They asked him if he had a lighter and enquired about local bus services. When he reached into his pocket to give them a lighter he was grabbed from behind round the mouth and pulled to the floor. Whilst on the ground he was kicked in the ribs. He suffered minor injuries to his chin and lips.
The gang took his phone, a Nokia 6320 valued at £200, and made off up Devonshire Mews.
The first suspect is a black male in his late teens, of a medium build wearing a dark blue sports jacket. According to the victim he spoke in a foreign language. The second suspect is a black male aged around 18, 5ft 10" tall with a short afro. The third victim had olive coloured skin and was shorter than the other two. He wore a light coloured top.
The victim was wearing a distinctive dark brown and beige striped fur coat.
