The Grand Ducal Police have reported that a woman was mugged yesterday morning in Ettelbruck.

Sometime between 07:30 and 08:00 on Tuesday 15 September 2020, two individuals allegedly robbed a woman on a side street off Rue de Bastogne in Ettelbruck. One man approached the victim from behind and stole her backpack, whilst a second man pushed her. After the theft, both perpetrators fled towards the main street (Rue du Canal), where they got into a red car. The getaway vehicle may have had a Belgian number plate. 

Police described the suspects as two dark-skinned men, approximately 1.70 m in height and of slim build. One man was dressed in a red jacket and dark tracksuit bottoms. The second man was wearing a dark tracksuit. At the time of the crime, both had pulled the hoods of their jackets over their heads and covered their nose and mouth with black bandanas.
