Robert Rinder, 42, took to Twitter on Wednesday evening to share the terrifying news that he had been mugged and had his phone stolen out of his hands by three males wearing balaclavas. The star of ITV’s court revealed the boys “laughed” at him as he shouted for them to “drop it”.
Robert sent out a plea to anyone who may have seen or knows anything about the suspects, offering a financial reward if they are found.
Posting to his social media, he penned: “I’ve just had my phone grabbed out my hands by 3 boys wearing balaclavas on bikes (Finchley Road & Canfield gardens).
“They laughed as I shouted to drop it.”
The telly Judge admitted he’s been left in shock but was feeling lucky to be covered by insurance so he can replace his phone.
