Chain Ripped From Man's Neck In City Centre

A man had a gold chain ripped from his neck by an attacker in a Coventry street yesterday afternoon.

The man was in Greyfriars Lane next to the Careers Centre when he was set upon at 3.30pm.

He was grabbed by the attacker, a white man in his early 20s, and pushed against a wall.

The victim felt something sharp being pressed into his side, but did not see a weapon.

A 16-inch gold chain worth 40 was pulled from his neck. His pockets were searched and 80 in cash was taken before the offender fled.

The attacker then fled. He has short black curly hair and was possibly wearing a black hooded jacket.

Witnesses should call 024 7653 9010.
