Appeal following a robbery

 Published on: 28th February 2018   |   By: Jason Allen   |   Category: Uncategorized

Officers investigating a robbery in Watford are appealing for a number of potential witnesses to come forward.

It happened on Metropolitan Station Approach at around 5.20pm on Sunday, February 25.

The victim, a 14-year-old boy, was approached by a group of six teenage boys who engaged him in conversation.

They then demanded money from him before assaulting him and taking his wallet, which contained bank cards and a small amount of cash. The offenders made off in the direction of the tube station.

PC Jon Holmes, who is leading the investigation, said: “The victim was left understandably shaken by what happened. I want to reassure him and the wider community that my team and I are working hard to bring those responsible to justice.

“It has come to our attention that a number of people may have witnessed this robbery, in particular a man and a woman who passed the victim as he was being robbed. They are estimated to be in their 40s or 50s.

“Another man and woman were seen leaving the area in their car at the time of the incident. I would urge these people, and anyone else who witnessed what happened, to please contact me as soon as possible.”

If anyone has any information relating to this incident, please email, call 101 and ask for PC 2469 Holmes or report online at, quoting crime reference number C1/18/1116.

Alternatively, you can contact the independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through their Anonymous Online Form at No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and you will never need to go to court.
