Harry Styles Was Robbed At Knifepoint On Valentine’s Day


While everyone was out celebrating Valentine’s Day and belated Galentine’s Day, Harry Styles had a scary run-in on Friday. During a night out in London, an unnamed man reportedly approached Harry and ‘demanded cash’ from him. According to the Metropolitan Police, they are investigating a robbery at knifepoint in the same area. The police didn’t state whether this investigation involved the singer, but the description does sound quite similar. The department 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 the Mirror Online, Harry ‘actually played it pretty cool, quickly giving the assailant cash, keeping himself and the guy calm and getting the situation over with.’ Luckily, Harry was able to diffuse the situation, but the Mirror source added, ‘Understandably, though, it left him very shaken up afterward.’

At the moment, no arrests have been made and the investigation is still ongoing.


Despite the frightening incident, Harry appeared at the 2020 BRIT Awards today, where he paid tribute to the late Love Island host Caroline Flack by wearing a black ribbon on his suit.
