Notting Hill Attempted Robbery
The 39-year-old was walking along Powis Terrace in Notting Hill at about 5.30pm yesterday and passed the suspect who was leaning on the railings outside Hedgegate Court.
As he walked past, the suspect reached out for his arm, saying: "Oi bruv, what's on the wrist?"
A scuffle broke out and the second man managed to get the victim in a headlock, before punching him in the face, leaving him with a suspected broken nose. He fell back, but still the other man was grabbing at his wrist. He punched his victim several more times, but could not remove the valuable Rolex Submariner watch.
So the suspect cycled off along Powis Terrace, and turned right into Westbourne Park Road.
He was described as a black man, about 6ft, wearing a black jacket with the hood up, and a black bandana with white markings covering his face.
