The attack took place on the footpath just behind the Beefeater restaurant, in Euston Way, near to the central station.

A man and woman approached the victim and produced a small knife, demanding money.

The robbers stole a small amount of cash before running off in the direction of Stafford Park, either under or on to the A5 dual carriageway, via the path behind the restaurant.

Police today revealed details of the attack, which happened at around 10pm on Monday, and appealed for witnesses and anyone who can help to identify the people involved.

The man is described as white, of a medium build, between 5ft 10ins and 6ft, in his mid to late 30s, with stubble. He was said to have spoken with a local accent.

At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a black jacket over a jumper with his hood up, and dark jogging bottoms with a jumper or scarf covering his mouth.

The woman is described as white, of an average build, around 5ft, in her mid 30s, with red acne scarring on her cheeks.

She was said to have spoken with a local accent and sounded like she had a lisp – possibly due to missing teeth.


She was wearing a dark jacket over a dark jumper with the hood up, dark trousers and was carrying a white carrier bag.

Anyone with information is asked to call West Mercia Police on 101, quoting incident reference number 0749S of February 12.
