A MAN was put in a head lock and robbed while walking in Wythall.
The 19-year-old victim was walking along Gorsey Lane towards the junction of Alcester Road, about 11pm on Monday (August 19), when a black hatchback car slowly drove past him.
The car, with the partial registration number of ERH, parked just in front of him and two men got out.
One of the men grabbed the victim around his neck, put him in a headlock and forced his fingers into his eye, before demanding money and his phone.
The second man then searched the victim, taking his wallet containing £20, a driving licence, bank card, keys and Samsung Galaxy S3 mini mobile phone worth £400.
The first man then pulled the victim to the floor before they both ran back to the waiting car and drove off.
Both robbers were in their late teens to early 20s.
The first man was white, around 5ft 10ins tall and of stocky build. He was wearing a black baseball cap and a black waterproof jacket.
The second man was of mixed race, around 6ft 2ins tall, and of slim to medium build. He was wearing a black jacket and a black baseball cap with a silver circle on the flipside.
The victim sustained a scratch to his neck but did not need medical treatment.
Anyone with any information should call Det Con Kevin Hadley or Det Con Mark Lazenby on 0300 333 3000 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
