You have two options:
1st: you can "steal" the lock by locking the file in a different
workingcopy use "svn lock --force <PathToFile>"
Depending on your svnconfiguration (hooks) it may be not allowed.

2nd: If you have access to the svnserver use the "rmlocks" command:
"svnadmin rmlocks <Path_2_Repos> <Path_2_File>

Hope that helps,
