Birmingham City footballer robbed for his £30,000 watch

A Birmingham City football has has his £30,000 watch stolen in Solihull, after being threatened by two men.

Blues winger, Peter Lovenkrands, was targeted by two men as he parked his car outside his Solihull home.

The thieves forced the diamond encrusted Hublot watch off his wrist and unsuccessfully tried to take his wedding ring before running off.

The men are described as white and aged in their late teens or early 20s. They were wearing hooded tops and had their faces covered.

The watch that was stolen is very unique and we would ask anyone who is offered a watch of this kind to contact us immediately.

Fortunately the victim was unhurt following the robbery but this was a frightening attack and we are appealing for the public's help to find the offenders.

– Andrew O'Keeffe, Detective Sergeant – Solihull Police
