(HRW) Sunday night saw the busy area of Place de la Constitution turn into a crime scene as a pedestrian was robbed and threatened.

At around 11pm on Sunday, in the Place de la Constitution, the Gëlle Fra (Golden Woman) is located, a man was held at knifepoint by two men, demanding his wallet. 

The wallet was stripped of money and returned to the stunned but unharmed pedestrian before the two men made a quick getaway.

Despite police efforts to conduct a manhunt, the search was unsuccesful.

Pedestrians are advised to be vigilant if walking around at night to help prevent such incidents occuring again.
