A 23-year-old woman, who had arrived in Pune from her native place in the early hours of Tuesday, was allegedly robbed of her phone and gold chain by two men near Kalewadi Phata.
An FIR in the case has been registered at the Wakad police station late on Tuesday. The police said that the complainant, an interior designer, arrived in Pune by bus around 4 am and got off at the Kalewadi Phata halting point.
Around 4.15 am, when she was walking towards her home at Rahatani, a person approached her from the roadside and asked if she required any help. She refused his offer but he suddenly snatched the gold neck chain she was wearing, the police said.
