During a night out in London on Valentine’s Day, singer Harry Styles had a frightening run-in with a knife-wielding mugger. Styles was with a friend at the time and both escaped physically unharmed.
The unnamed man approached Styles and “demanded cash” — a request that Styles calmly complied with.
The Metropolitan Police told E! News:
“Officers were contacted on Saturday, 15 February regarding the incident which happened at 23.50 hrs on Friday, 14 February. It was reported that a man in his 20s was approached by another man and threatened him with a knife. The victim was not injured however, cash was taken from him.”
According to reports, Styles was able to keep himself and the mugger calm while he handed over the cash. Afterward, he was understandably shaken. Styles has not publicly commented on the robbery.
Styles appeared at the 2020 BRIT Awards on Tuesday, where he gave a tribute to the late Love Island host Caroline Flack.
He also performed at the event, where he’s nominated for British Male Solo Artist and British Album of the Year awards.
