A 56-year-old man has been cut with a bladed article in an attempted robbery, just days after a similar incident in the same road.
The man, who was walking his dog at the time of the incident in Yellow Brick Road, Newmarket, was approached from behind by the robber around 6.45pm on Thursday, January 9.
The robber demanded money from the victim - who refused - before pulling out the bladed article and slashing at his jumper, leaving minor injuries.
It comes just three days after a similar incident, when a man, 23, was cut in the face with a sharp object during a robbery by three men in the road.
Police say they are keeping an "open mind" on whether the incidents may be linked.
