A mugger stole a fake Rolex watch and a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses from a festival-goer, Sussex Police said yesterday (Thursday 6 October).

The force did not give the age of the victim but said that he was leaving a toilet cubicle in Stanmer Park when he was robbed by three people whose gender was not given.

Sussex Police said: “Police are appealing for witnesses to a robbery at Boundary music festival in Brighton.

“The victim was leaving a toilet cubicle at the event in Stanmer Park when he was assaulted by three unknown suspects around 9.30pm on Saturday 24 September.

“The victim suffered a number of cuts to his hand and had a replica Rolex watch and a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses stolen.

“Police investigating the robbery are keen to hear from anyone who saw what happened or who may have seen the watch (pictured above) being offered for sale since.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact police online or by calling 101 quoting serial 1324 of 24/09.

“Alternatively, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”

    How can the police ask for witnesses if they won’t even say the age range of the victim nor the genders of the muggers!

    Will he get in trouble for having counterfeit goods??? Folk should buy from independent retailers to support folk selling the genuine thing. Anyway shame this happened. Mindfulness would help

    They are not sold as the genuine article. You know you are buying a replica. They are available from China and some from Japan. If they tried to sell them as the “real thing” that would be illegal. Owning a replica is not illegal.
