Teenager Injured By Coventry Street Attacker

A teenager was punched in the face several times by a man who demanded money from him in Coventry city centre yesterday.

The attack happened in Cox Street at 2.30am, when the 19-year-old was confronted by a black man, 5ft 8ins with a goatee beard.

The victim was struck several times in the face, suffering a two-inch cut to his right eyebrow and swelling to his left eye and cheekbone.

His Accurist watch, which had a silver strap and blue face, worth 50, was taken by the robber.

The attacker then fled in the direction of Generations nightclub in Raglan Street. He was wearing a grey hooded fleece and black jeans.
