Detectives in Camden Borough have released CCTV footage of two men they would like to speak to in connection with a robbery in Hampstead.

On Saturday, 24 September police were called shortly before 01:10hrs to a robbery in Heath Street, NW3.

Officers attended and spoke to a 27-year-old man who stated that he had been assaulted and had his watch stolen by two men.

One man had grabbed the victim around the neck and the other man removed his watch from his wrist.

The suspects then threw the victim to the ground and fled the scene on foot.

The victim suffered minor injuries but did not require medical treatment.

The suspects are described as two men wearing hooded bomber jackets with their faces covered.

"This is a shocking incident that has left the victim very distressed. We are keen to identify the two men in the CCTV footage so we can speak to them about the incident. We would also urge anyone who witnessed the incident to contact us."
