Harry Styles was reportedly mugged at knifepoint on February 14 during a night out in London.
According to The Mirror, Styles was threatened, but not hurt during the incident. The UK tabloid reports a man demanded cash, which the One Direction star handed over.
The Metropolitan Police confirmed they were investigating an incident after a man in his 20s had been threatened with a knife, but could not name the victim.
Fans of the 26-year-old singer have been upset by the news, taking to Twitter to express their anger at the perpetrator.
"WHO THE F**K HELD HARRY STYLES AT KNIFEPOINT? IMMA NEED A NAME AND LOCATION," one tweet read.
"This is beyond scary," another wrote along with a crying emoji.
A source reportedly told the Mirror that Styles was "very shaken up afterwards", but he still made it to the BRIT awards, where he donned a black ribbon to remember his late ex-girlfriend, Love Island host Caroline Flack.
