TWO ROBBERS were forced to flee empty handed after they were disturbed whilst trying to get their intended victim to hand over cash.

The incident happened around 9pm on Saturday (March 28) on School Lane, Upton-on-Severn.

It began when the victim was walking through an alleyway, where there was one man in front of him and another behind him.

The second man pushed him into the first and he pushed him back before demanding money.

The victim, who is in his 20s, told them he did not have any cash and then two people entered the alleyway.

The first man pushed the victim against a fence and the pair fled towards the High Street.

Luckily, the victim was uninjured and nothing was taken.

The first man had a thick Irish accent and was wearing a hooded top with the hood up and scarf across his face.

The second man also had his hood up and his face covered. He was wearing a black hooded jacket with ‘Airmax’ written in white across the front.

Any witnesses – particularly the two who entered the alley while the incident was taking place – and anyone else with any information should call 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
