Image released after violent robbery at Nottingham student accommodation

Detectives are appealing for the public’s help after a robbery at a student block of flats in Nottingham where the victim was attacked.

Two men, aged 19 and 20, have already been arrested on suspicion of robbery, but a number of individuals remain outstanding.

Police have now issued CCTV images of two men they wish to trace who could help them further their inquiries.

The incident happened on Sunday 4 February at a block of flats in Traffic Street. A group of men entered the student accommodation block and knocked on the victim’s door.

When he answered it, he was pushed to the ground and choked with his own jumper while they raided his property of his belongings. They also put their hands around his throat to prevent him from calling for help.

Expensive watches worth £10,000 including a Rolex and Casio were taken as well as his mobile phone and £800 in cash. The men then fled the scene.

Detective Constable Andre Foster, who is investigating the incident, said:

“These are despicable individuals who carried out a nasty attack on a student in his own home.

“The international student had not been in Nottingham for long and this incident has understandably left them shaken and afraid.

“He has even had to move to new accommodation as a result.

“There is absolutely no place for this type of violence in our city and that is why we are absolutely determined to bring those responsible to justice.

“We are calling on the public’s help to identify the individuals in these CCTV images.

“While we understand the images are not of the greatest quality, we believe someone will know who they are due to their clothing. Do you know the people in these CCTV images? Are you the people in these CCTV images? Please get in touch as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 0083 of the 4 February 2024 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
