Student mugged leaving train at Egham station

"Fortunately the victim was not harmed in any way but this was obviously a very upsetting ordeal for him."

Royal Holloway’s students are very rarely the victims of crime in Egham, but at approximately 7:30-7:45pm November 30 2010, a week before the end of winter term, a 21 year-old male Holloway student was mugged shortly after leaving Egham train station.

The student was approached by two men, both white and approximately 5’ 8”-10”, one of whom threatened him at knifepoint. He was forced to hand over a BlackBerry phone, approximately £60 cash and a beige scarf. One of the men was wearing blue jeans and white trainers, and the other was described as wearing dark clothing.

Egham’s Detective Constable Dave Sharp publicly stated: “This is a worrying incident where a young man was threatened with a knife during an unprovoked attack. Fortunately the victim was not harmed in any way but this was obviously a very upsetting ordeal for him.”

Anyone with information regarding the attack is encouraged to contact Surrey Police on 0845 125 2222, quoting reference RM/10/7551, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
