ROBBERS attacked a teenager with a knife and stole his watch and money.

The 19-year-old man was walking through a subway between Pond Wood Road and Hazelwick Avenue in Crawley when the two robbers, both men, asked him for a cigarette before demanding his possessions.

They punched the man and held his hands behind his back before cutting his face with the blade. The attack happened at around 5pm on November 7.

The men took £30 and a watch from the victim before running off towards North Street.

One of the robbers was black, muscular, 6ft, and aged around 25. He was wearing a blue, waterproof, hooded top with the hood up and black jeans.

The other man was possibly Asian, 5ft 10in, and aged around 20. He was wearing black Nike trainers and a black jacket.
