A young woman was robbed in St Albans last week by a group of men wearing black bandanas.

She was walking along the Alban Way between Hill End Lane and Morrisons on Hatfield Road when she was approached by three men.

One was described as black, aged between 20 and 25, and wearing a white jumper, black tracksuit bottoms and black bandana over his mouth.

The other two were white, wearing black clothing and a black bandana. One was described as aged between 20 and 25.

They took cash from her and threatened her before making off in the direction of Morrisons.

Det Sgt Adrian Lysak said: “I would like to reassure the community that we are doing all that we can to locate these offenders. If you have any information that can assist with our investigation, please contact me via the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference F3/17/2396.”
