A young man was robbed at knifepoint in a Coventry subway yesterday.

The 19 year old Coventry man was in a subway in London Road, near to the junction with Gulson Road, Stoke at about 11.20pm on Thursday.

He was approached by two men and one of them asked for the time. As the victim looked at his watch, the offender grabbed his right hand and forced it behind his back.

The same offender them pulled out a knife and held it to the victim's throat.

The second offender then grabbed the man's left hand and took off his wrist watch and also snatched the victim's mobile phone.

This same offender then punched the 19 year old in the face and head.

The two attackers then made off in the direction of Gulson Road.

The offenders were both described as being black and in their early 20s. The first one was about 6ft tall, of heavy build with cropped black hair and wearing a purple jumper. The second offender was about 6ft 2in tall, of medium build with cropped black hair. He was wearing a purple jumper and blue jeans.

They stole a Samsung mobile phone worth about 100 and a Guess wrist watch worth 60.
