West Midlands Police were alerted to a robbery which took place in Ley Hill Park in Northfield at around 11am on Wednesday 7 June.

A 43 a year old lady was when she was approached by three men who demanded that she gave them her jewellery whilst was walking her dog in the popular south west Birmingham park.

After refusing to do so, she was pulled to the ground and then struck to the head.

One of the men also slashed her arm with a bladed article, before making off with her jewellery.

A spokesperson for West Midlands Police said “Following enquiries of another incident in the same area, three men were arrested on suspicion of robbery and bilking offences, however they were later released without charge.”

The investigation is on-going and anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, quoting 20BW/118953J/17. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or visit www.crimestoppers-uk.org


  1. We will soon need to be armed to walk our dogs ! I hope the lady and her dog will recover, it must have been very frightening

  2. This is disgracefu! 11.00a.m. in the morning in broad daylight! I hope this lady and her dog are okay and that she isnt too frightened to get back in the park again. Can we please see a police presence on the beat in our local parks and around our community, I only ever see them speeding around in their cars on the Bristol Road these days.

  3. Can’t even go for a nice quite dog walk without scumbags hounding folk today.
    They never attack the 6ft 5in 18st guy do they.
    Ide take a baseball bat around with me.
    Protect myself and my dog.
    And the ist one to try his luck will be smashed for a home run…!!!

  4. Bloody hell! I hope the lady n her dog is ok x can’t even walk ur dog these days. What do the public need to do in order to protect themselves….carry a weapon????!!!!!
