Police are hoping for witnesses to a knife-point robbery in Crawley.

On Tuesday (November 7) at about 5pm, a 19-year-old man had left a shop on North Road and was walking through the subway between Pond Wood Road and Hazelwick Avenue. He was approached by two men from the opposite direction who asked him for a cigarette. He gave them one before they demanded his watch and some money. He refused.

They punched him and held his hand behind his back while they robbed him of his watch and £30. The victim was then cut on the face with a knife. The suspects then ran away towards North Road.

“The two suspects are described as one black man, muscular build, about 6′ and about 25. He was wearing a blue waterproof hooded top with the hood up and black jeans. The second man was possibly Asian, about 20, about 5′ 10”. He was wearing black Nike trainers and a black jacket.

“This happened in the early evening and we are hoping someone might have seen these two men running away from the subway or recognise their descriptions.”
