Coventry Youth Threatened With Stabbing

A teenager was grabbed around the neck and told he would be stabbed if he did not hand his expensive mobile phone over.

The 16-year-old was in Cox Street in Hillfields at 2.05am on Saturday when he was approached by the offender, who started talking to him.

The man then grabbed him around the neck and pushed something sharp in his back.

He told the frightened boy that he would stab him unless he handed over his Eriksson phone, worth 300.

The teenager gave him the phone and the attacker ran off. The offender is aged between 17 and 19, 6ft, skinny and has short fair hair brushed forward. He was wearing a garish blue shirt.

Witnesses should call police on 024 7653 9010.
