London- Two Somali men steal autistic man's McDonald's meal and headphones at Tube station

(Evening Standard)- Police are hunting two men who stole an autistic man’s McDonald’s meal and headphones at a central London Tube station.

The 23-year-old victim, who has been left feeling too vulnerable to use the Tube, was walking through Holborn station in the early hours of the morning when the men approached him.

He was stopped by a man who demanded that he hand over his food.

When he refused, he was threatened by a second man.
The thieves then stole his McDonald’s burger and milkshake and his Beats headphones before fleeing on the Eastbound central line.
Police have released CCTV images of two men they want to speak to after the incident, which happened at about 2.30am on Sunday, March 19.
Investigating officer, PC Suzanne Canning, said: “Fortunately the victim was not injured, but he is still very much shaken by the incident and has not travelled on the Tube since as he feels too vulnerable.

“I would like to speak to the men shown in the CCTV images as they may have information which could help with the investigation."

Anyone with information should call police  0800 40 50 40 or text information to 61016, quoting reference number 366 05/04/ 2017.
