Men threatened at knifepoint and forced to hand over clothes

Laura Kearns 21st Aug, 2017 Updated: 21st Aug, 2017

TWO men were threatened at knifepoint and forced to hand over items of clothing.

The pair were walking along Mount Road in Henley at around 7.30pm on Thursday (August 17) when they were approached by two men who demanded they hand over their gilets.

One of the victims was grabbed around the neck and thrown to the floor, after which he handed over the clothing, which was worth some £350 and contained his wallet.

The men then pulled out a Stanley knife to demand the other handed over his top, and when he refused he was thrown to the floor.

The offenders ran off after a dog-walker went past.

One of the men was of mixed-race, 17 years-old, around 6ft tall and wearing a black hoodie, black jeans, a grey baseball cap and a blue bag.

The second offender is described as a black male, 18 years-old, stocky build, wearing a black moncler jacket, blue jeans, black baseball cap and a black Versace belt.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 and speak to police.
