Wanted MenPolice release photographs sent to woman following New Year's Eve robbery

Police have released images of three men they would like to speak to following a robbery in Birmingham.

The victim was a 24-year-old woman who was walking along Granville Street at around 3am on New Year's Eve on her way to a hotel following a night out with her boyfriend.

Police said she was pushed to the ground by a group of men.

Her clutch bag - containing a mobile phone, driving licence and bank card - was stolen during the incident.

She has since received messages from her phone with a profile photo of three men.

A West Midlands Police spokesman said:"Police are keen to identity these men in connection with the crime."

Anyone with information about the robbery or the men pictured are urged to contact police on 101 or alternatively information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
