Police are appealing for witnesses after a robbery in Podsmead in Gloucester over the weekend.
The incident happened between 4.30am and 4.35am on Sunday 11 August
A 22-year-old Gloucester man was walking along Podsmead Road towards Cole Avenue with his earphones in.
The robber rode up behind him on a bike, blocked his path and demanded his Sony Ericsson W715 mobile phone before putting the victim in a headlock to get it.
When the victim managed to shout at a passing driver the attacker made off. The offender is described as white, around 20 years old, with light brown cropped hair and a striped long sleeve top.
Anyone with information should call 101, quoting incident 346 of August 11.
Information can also be given anonymously on 0800 555 111, or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org. In some cases Crimestoppers offer rewards of up to £1000 where information leads to a conviction.
