The robbery happened between 8.30am and 9am on Monday April 8, when the 21-year-old victim was pulled into an alley way by two men in Mill Hill .
The victim was then held against the wall while one of the men hit him in the face and attempted to search his pockets. The victim managed to get free shortly after and ran away.
During the incident one of the men made comments of a racist nature to the victim.
Nothing was taken during the incident and the victim was not hurt.
The two suspects have been described as being white, aged in their early twenties and approximately 6ft tall. One of the men had short, ginger hair and was wearing a black Adidas hooded jacket with green stripes and black Adidas trainers with green laces. The second man was wearing a Northface jacket.
PC Adam Gamble, the investigating officer, said:
“Thankfully nothing was taken from the victim and he wasn’t hurt, but that doesn’t mean we are any less determined to find the two men responsible.
“Mill Hill is a busy stretch of road, particularly at the time of day when people travel to work and school.
“We would like to ask people who travel down that road in the mornings to think back and get in touch if they remember seeing anything. Can you remember seeing the two men? Did you see them pull the victim into the alley way? Any information you have could help so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”
