Appeal for information after Highbury robbery

Vicious thugs threatened to stab a pensioner during a robbery in Highbury.

Police are appealing for help in tracking down three men wanted in connection with the robbery which took place at around 1am on June 24.

The victim, a 68-year-old man, was in Highbury Grange when a group of men stopped him.

The group then ordered him to hand over his belongings and threatened to stab him if he did not.

Det Con Michelle Colyer said: “I urge any members of the public to come forward should they recognise any of the images or if they are able provide any information to this serious offence.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101, Islington CID on 07766781861 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
