Annabel Croft is ALSO mugged in broad daylight by a masked man on bike


Annabel Croft, 57, was mugged in broad daylight by a masked man on a bike in central London

Her phone was stolen ‘clean out of her hands’ while she waited for a taxi outside King’s Cross station. 

Recounting the ‘terrifying ordeal’ on Tuesday, the former tennis player and Strictly Come Dancing star, explained how her phone was stolen during a ‘snatch and go’ attack. 


She wrote in an Instagram update: ‘I just wanted to warn people who are on their own in London. I just got mugged waiting for a taxi outside King’s Cross St Pancras.

‘The man was riding a bike and wearing a black balaclava. He rode straight at me and took my phone clean out of my hands.’

She continued, ‘He rode away with it but luckily dropped my phone so I got it back. Terrifying! 

‘On a positive note, there are some lovely people out there. Luckily a lovely gentleman witnessed it and came over to help me. Thank you to whoever you are.’

The attempted theft is typical of e-bike crooks who operated across the capital, often acting in pairs and using mopeds or electric bikes to make a quick getaway. 

Gangs of muggers on e-bikes are terrorising the streets of London as they target children, mothers and commuters by snatching their mobiles.

There has been a spate of phone thefts as of late, with two incidents being caught on camera in as many days. 

Figures have shown that a mobile phone is reported as stolen in London every six minutes.
