Stealing more than £100 was not enough for one man who then started punching his victim in the face.

Detectives are investigating the robbery which took place in Oxford Road, at the junction with Harrow Road, in Clacton between 11.30pm and midnight on Monday.

A man was walking in the direction of the town when he was approached by another man who demanded he hand over “everything he was carrying”.

Despite giving the man the cash he was still punched twice in the face, causing cuts and bruises.

The attacker is described as white, about 5ft 9in tall, of medium build and in his mid-20s. He was wearing a blue or grey hooded top with the hood pulled up.

Shortly before the robbery the victim believes another man had been in company with the attacker. This man had a push bike and is believed to have turned down Harrow Road just after the victim had entered into Oxford Road.

Investigating officer, DC Mo Crawley, said: “Just as the attacker walked away into Harrow Road, after the robbery, a car drove by in Oxford Road. We believe the people in this car may have seen the attacker and could provide us with vital information and would urge them to get in touch.

“I would also like to hear from anyone who has any information about who may be responsible for this crime.”

Call Clacton Police Station on 101, alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
