Lambeth Police are appealing for witnesses to a robbery that occurred last Sunday (27 February) at 1am on Kennington Park Road.
A white man in his thirties (6'2" in height, bald head, large build, wearing a navy blue top) attacked a couple who were on their way home from a glam rock fancy dress party. The female member of the couple was knocked to the ground, and her male partner fought off the attacker who fled the area.
At that point, the couple were confronted by four black men (in their twenties) who demanded a mobile phone. The male victim defended himself again and fought with one of the men who he managed to chase away. At the same time, another one of the attackers took the bag of the female victim which had fallen to the floor in the earlier attack.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call DC Michael Quinlan of Lambeth Borough police who is investigating this case on 020 8649 2478. Alternatively you can report information anonymously to Crime stoppers on 0800 555 111.
The police appeal can be found here.
