A MAN was robbed of his iPhone in a subway in Portsmouth.

The 46-year-old victim was walking in the pedestrian subway near Lake Road and Commercial Road at around 6.30pm on Friday when two men blocked his path.

The victim refused requests from the men for money and to borrow his phone.

One of the men then used a knife to threaten the victim who handed over his iPhone, before the pair ran off towards Lake Road. The victim was not hurt.

The first suspect was white, in his 20s, well-built, 5ft 10in tall and was wearing a waist-length red jacket. The second suspect was white, aged in his 20s, well-built, 5ft 10in tall and wearing a blue jacket with a hood or hat. Anyone with information can call CID at Fratton Police Station on 101.
