Worrying news from Clayhanger where near the canal bridge last night at around 11pm (Sunday 5th March 2017) a lady was mugged by a couple of robbers for £30.
The lady’s mother said:
My daughter has been mugged tonight by a man and women in Clayhanger they approached her from behind at around 11pm and demanded money they took the £30 she had on her
Please share this and be careful walking alone!
If anyone knows or saw anything please let me know
She didn’t get a good look at them, they came behind her but a male was following my partner same place few weeks ago so if being same people maybe hang around by bridge to target people!
The women had a cap in with black tracksuit bottoms and white reebok trainers and the bloke had a dark hoody with his hood up.
Sister said ther accents were local and was a man and a woman not great with a description but my sisters not got any confidence as it is so I’m guessing she just gave them the money to get away.
It’s very concerning that the victim has, in my understanding, been told the police are unable to take a statement until Friday – this is wholly unacceptable.
My sympathies to the poor lady and please do take care out there, particularly watch out in isolated spots.
Please, if you have any information, do speak to the police. These people need to be caught before they do it again. If you know who this might be, or if you saw anything at all, please contact West Midlands Police by dialling 101 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
