Mobile phone robbery in Brighton street

18 February 2013

Police in Brighton are seeking a suspect who stole a mobile phone from a young man in the street.

At about 3am on Saturday 16 February the 21-year old victim left Headkandi night club and walked up West Street, and then left into North Street. When he was near the Subway sandwich shop he was approached by a man who started chatting to him. The man suggested a short cut to the bus stops in Old Steine, which is where the victim wanted to go, and guided him to Palace Place, where the man was joined by several other men. They threatened the victim and the suspect took his Mobile iPhone 5, valued at some £500.

Detective Constable Caroline Ingold said; "The suspect is described as black, about  24-25 years old, 5'9", of slim build and wearing a browny green jacket, jeans and black shoes. If you were in or around West Street and Palace Place shortly after 3am on Saturday and saw anything of what happened, or if you have been offered a cheap iPhone 5, please contact us via 101 quoting serial 0226 of 16/2. You can also call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously via 0800 555 111."
