A police spokesman said: “A 36-year-old man was walking in the street when he was approached from behind by a man who demanded money. The offender assaulted the victim with an unknown object and ran off.

“The victim sustained two scratches to the face as a result of the incident and nothing was stolen.

“There is no further description of the offender.”
