Following reports of phone-snatch muggings in Lindon Road, on the Brownhills/Walsall Wood border last weekend, there are sketchy reports of another such robbery taking place closer to Streets Corner on the Brownhills Road yesterday.

The story circulating suggests a young lad was mugged after a car pulled over when he was walking up the road; he was threatened violently and had his phone taken.

The attacker was apparently a white male.

I have been unable to confirm this report with West Midlands Police, but it pays to be careful.

Please, if you have any information, do speak to the cops. These robbers need to be caught before he does it again. If you know who it might be, or if you saw anything at all, please do contact West Midlands Police by dialling 101 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

    It’s correct Bob, I know the lad personally. He said when he mentioned a knife he relinquished his phone straight away. A wise move. Let’s hope this person is found quickly.
