Robbery is theft which is accompanied by an act of actual or threatened violence in order to deprive the victim of their property. There doesn’t need to be any actual harm inflicted, rather it is enough that the victim fears harm if they resist.

For example, threatening someone in order to have them open a safe or other lock-fast repository is sufficient to constitute robbery. Equally, threatening someone to cause them to flee and abandon their property will very probably amount to robbery. If force is used in the act, then the charge may be one of ‘assault and robbery’.
