The local policing team for Stratford and New Town reported on their twitter feed on November 22nd that:
“One male behind bars tonight when caught in mid flow robbing a male on the Greenaway. Subject searched and found with an offensive weapon. “
A subsequent post shows “the weapon found on male who was arrested for robberies at the Greenway.”
The author of this post was robbed using a very similar knife a few days beforehand. The knife was described to police as “a black hunting knife enclosed in a black case”. It is disappointing that despite the similarities the Police have not been in contact to ascertain whether the two robberies were linked.
