POLICE IN LONDON are appealing for witnesses after a couple with a baby were robbed at knifepoint.

At around 3.30pm last Saturday, the two victims, a 31-year-old woman and a 32-year-old man, were approached by two men on a moped in Sprimont Place, Chelsea, London.

The suspects threatened the victims with a knife and demanded they hand over their watches, according to Metropolitan Police.

One of the suspects pointed the knife towards a baby in the pram that the couple were pushing.

Fearful for their own safety and that of the child, the couple handed over their watches.

The suspects took off on the moped towards Elystan Place in Chelsea.

Police say no one was injured during the altercation.

Police in Kensington and Chelsea have issued CCTV of two robbery suspects and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

Both suspects were wearing black crash helmets, and are described as being white males wearing navy blue tracksuits and black Nike trainers.

Anyone with information about this incident or the suspects is being asked to call Kensington or Chelsea Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555-111.
