Watford Observer: Picture from stock Picture from stock

A man was pepper-sprayed in the face during a robbery in Croxley Green on Sunday.

Hertfordshire Constabulary is appealing for information after two men in their 20s were approached at about 11.30pm in Watford Road.

Two men, who police are describing as being of Asian appearance, threatened the victims and sprayed one of them in the face before stealing a bag.

Police would like to speak with anyone who was in the area at the time and saw anything suspicious, or saw one of the victims attempt to flag down passing traffic.

Anyone with information can contact DC Adam Bridges on 101 quoting crime reference number C2/14/902 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Usually these muggings have been commited in West Watford and Cassiobury park on younger kids - the muggers must branching out.. and getting braver!

Pepper spray is new too... exciting eh?

Still, with no deterrent, the criminals call the shots these days, which will please the liberals no end! especially Clegg!

Viz a viz, I agree I'm not nailing my politics to any party just quoting the facts and the moment we are in!
We do need to sort the problem that is overflowing into our lives today.
I think you need to get out my friend into our town and see the endemic that is happening and it is not just here!
A book is more than the cover, I suggest you should open one.

These 'ethnics' as you call them could quite easily be fourth or fith generation UK born, where exactly would you send them to?

'Back home' is usually the answer, but that could be West Watford or North London, or the Midlands or pretty much anywhere in this very country.

Wether you are Scully or not what a stupid comment

More people who read biased newspaper headlines and think Ukip are like the BNP.

Education and common sense is still very much needed all round!
