  • Published

Police are investigating a robbery in which a man was tied up and threatened at knifepoint by three men.

It happened at a property on Church Road, Bristol, on Tuesday 12 March. The victim was left traumatised but only suffered minor injuries from the attack, police said.

The men stole money from the victim, as well as a number of silver watches that police are keen to find.

Officers are appealing for help to identify the men responsible. One of the offenders was known to the victim, who described the other attackers as black men, aged somewhere in their 30s or 40s.

One of the men is believed to have had facial hair and was wearing a black Supply & Demand Parka jacket with a fur trim and leaf logo on the sleeve and silver detail zips.

He also wore a dark coloured hoodie with his hood pulled up, black trainers, and black trousers.

The other man wore a dark green coat with cream inside the hood, a dark coloured hoodie with his hood up, light blue skinny jeans, and dark blue trainers with white soles.

CCTV enquiries were carried out in the Church Road area following the robbery and police are now releasing images of two men they wish to speak to as part of their investigation.

Detectives are also keen to hear from anyone who has been offered any of the following watches for sale:

  • A silver TAG Heuer watch with silver hands.

  • A silver Breitling watch with sapphire detail.

  • A silver Breitling watch with a ruby coloured face.

  • A silver watch which also doubles as a lighter.

Police are urging anyone who recognises the men in the images, or has any other information which could help with their investigation, to get in contact.
