Harry Styles was robbed at knifepoint on Valentine’s Day and had to run home, alone, in corduroy flares, because nobody would help him.

The 26-year-old lesbian icon was alone and on his way home when he was robbed.

Speaking about the attack on the Howard Stern radio show for the first time since it happened, Styles revealed that he tried to get help from people driving past, but no one would help him.

“I was walking home from a friend’s house. I’m five minutes from home, and I kind of see this group of guys who all got their hoods up and their faces covered and stuff and I was like, that’s a bit weird,” he said.

Styles said the group started by asking if he wanted to buy some weed, and when he said no they asked him: “What have you got on you?”

After handing over cash, he was then asked to give up his phone.

“The guy’s like unlock your phone and the other one pulls his shirt up and he’s got a knife sticking in his pants and I was like, s**t,” Styles said.

They kept asking him to unlock his phone and hand it over, but Harry Styles kept refusing.

He recalled: “There’s a little pond behind them and I thought I’d throw it in the pond and be like, neither of us can have it, and then I thought I didn’t want to p**s them off.

“Two cars were coming and I felt an opportunity to sprint and run and I just run into the road and try to stop a car… obviously a mad man runs into the road, you won’t let them into your car, so they don’t let me in.

“I try and get another car, they don’t let me in… I just turned and [ran] back to the little village area where I live.”

Styles added that he usually wearing running stuff when he’s out walking, but on this occasion he was wearing corduroy flares.

“I just sprinted but usually when I’m out walking I’m wearing running stuff,” Styles said. “This was the one time I was like wearing corduroy [flares] and shoes. I was like, I’m going to have to f**king sprint all the way up this hill.”

The police confirmed the following day that the incident had been reported and that investigations are ongoing.
