A woman was attacked and robbed while trying to enter her city centre apartment, police report.

The woman was about to unlock the front door of her apartment block in rue Victor Hugo at around 8.30pm on Wednesday when she was grabbed from behind.

Police report that one attacker held a hand over her mouth while an accomplice snatched her handbag. Speaking in French, one of the suspects then told her to release her handbag. The victim dropped her phone during the scuffle, which the thieves also stole before fleeing on foot towards the Glacis and Allée Scheffer.

Police are appealing for witnesses to this incident to come forward. The suspects were about 1.7 metres tall, of normal stature with black hair. They were aged from 20 to 25 years old.

Anyone with information about the attack is urged to call Luxembourg Police on 113.
