[24 JAN 01] CRIMES, FIRES & ACCIDENTS
Man Robbed By Gang At Canal Basin

A man had a sharp object pressed into his back and was robbed as he used a telephone at Coventry Canal Basin.

The man was using a phone in a kiosk yesterday at 1.15pm when he was approached by three men who were either Asian or eastern European.

He felt a sharp object, which could have been a knife, being pressed into his back. The attackers demanded money and searched his pockets, taking 19 in cash before fleeing.

One of the attackers is in his 20s, with short black hair, black trousers, and wore a grey three-quarter length puffa jacket.

Witnesses should call police on 024 7653 9010.
