Clacton: Appeal for information following robbery

DETECTIVES are appealing for information following a street robbery in Clacton.

The attack happened when a 40-year-old man from the Clacton area was walking near to the alleyway between Blenheim Road and Park Road at 3.30pm on Thursday, October 11.

He was approached by two young men, one of whom punched him in the face. In fear of further violence, the victim handed over his wallet and both men ran off towards Park Road.

Investigating officer, Dc Annalise Redden, said: “This attack happened in the middle of the afternoon so we’re hopeful that motorists or passing pedestrians would have seen it.

“We would urge anyone who had been in the Blenheim Road area at the time to contact us as they may have seen these two offenders either before or after the robbery; and in which case, they are key witnesses.”
