19 January, 2018

A PEDESTRIAN was robbed at knifepoint near the Emirates Stadium, police have said in an appeal for witnesses.

Two men on a scooter snatched a mobile phone out of the hand of a 24-year-old man walking in Hornsey Road, Holloway, at about 6pm on January 3.

When the man tried to get his phone back one of the suspects brandished a knife at him before the thieves rode off along Hornsey Road, Met Police said in a statement.

They are appealing for information. No arrests have been made yet.

Detective Inspector Thomas Kearney, of Central North Command Unit, said: “It is important that the public are aware of their surroundings at all times and protect their personal property, as these criminals can strike in an instant.”

Anyone with information about the robbery should call 101. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or tweet @MetCC with information.
