Police are investigating a report of an offender threatening a man with a bladed object and stealing his phone.

The incident took place near the bus stop on Longbridge Lane close to the junction with the Bristol Road at around 12.30pm yesterday (Thursday 9th March).

A spokesperson for West Midlands Police said: “The offender repeatedly approached the man before pointing a sharp instrument, possibly scissors at him and demanding he hand over the iPhone 6s.”

The victim did as ordered and the offender escaped on foot towards the retail park.

Police are urging anyone with information to contact 101 quoting crime number 20BW/49376Q/17. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or visit www.crimestoppers-uk.org 


  1. The Longbridge development should be warmly welcomed! Don’t let a minority element who probably don’t even live in that particular neck of the woods, detract from the massive investment there!
