Knifepoint robbery in Bishop's Stortford: Man suffers cut to hand as duo in black hoodies wrestle him to the ground
A man was robbed at knifepoint in Bishop's Stortford by two men who stole his phone and £60 in cash.
The victim was walking along Cemetery Road shortly after 7pm on Thursday evening (Feb 25) when he was attacked by the pair.
They wrestled him to the ground before one of them pulled out a knife with a 12in (30cm) blade.
They slashed his right hand then took his money, iPhone 6 and cigarette lighter. He also lost his bank cards in the scuffle.
He called police and later told officers that he did not recognise the robbers, neither of whom said anything to him before the unprovoked attack.
One of the robbers was white and the other black. Both wore black hoodies, gloves and trainers.
