Coventry Editorial 28th Apr, 2022

COVENTRY Police are trying to track down the young victim of a robbery in the city centre on Easter Monday.

Officers launched an investigation into the incident after receiving a report from a third party report about a boy being approached in Corporation Street at around 2.30pm and having a chain snatched from his neck.

Police want to make sure he has recovered from the ordeal, ask whether officers can support him, and obtain more information about what happened.

Any parent or guardian whose child has recently stopped wearing their chain, and matches this description is urged to contact the police on 101.

Witnesses or anyone else with information relating to the incident should also call 101.
