Man robbed of watch in Luton street

Luton police are appealing for information after a gent’s TAG watch was taken during a street robbery on Sunday evening, February 2.

The incident happened in Chase Street between 9.15pm and 10pm when the 31 year old victim was approached by two men who remarked on his watch.

The men then threatened the victim and demanded he hand over the watch and his mobile before they left the scene.

One offender is described as black, 30 to 36 years old, 6’ tall with a medium build, wearing a black hooded top; the other is also described as black, 25 to 30 years old, 5’10” tall wearing a hat.

The officer in charge of this investigation, Detective Constable Lucy Arnold, is keen to trace anyone who saw the incident or anyone who has been offered a TAG watch for sale recently.

DC Arnold said: “The watch taken during this incident had a dark face and silver metal bracelet. I would urge anyone who has been offered a second hand watch matching this description to contact the police.”

Anyone with information relating to this crime can contact DC Arnold at Luton Police Station, in confidence, on 01582 394471, or Bedfordshire Police on 101, or text information to 07786 200011.
