Writing a statement on his page, he penned: ‘I had the BEST night last night. Sadly, on my way home from Soho when I was walking to get a taxi, I was approached by a man who robbed me.

‘It all happened so quickly and luckily I wasn’t hurt at all (the git stole my watch though), but it could’ve been so much worse.’

He continued: ‘I foolishly chased after him, but he got away. I now know that’s not a good idea as sometimes these people will lead you into a trap.

‘I wasn’t going to say anything because I felt stupid and a little bit embarrassed, but after speaking to some friends I thought it might just serve as a reminder: please be careful when coming home at night, even in spaces you think are safe. Look out for each other peeps x.’
