A MAN was robbed at knife point as he walked home from a night out.
The 24-year-old male victim was approached by two men on Kendall Road, Colchester, at 3am on Saturday.
They threatened him with a knife and forced him to hand over his mobile telephone.
The muggers ran off towards Military Road.
They are described as white, aged in their early 20s and were wearing hoodies.
The incident happened the day after hundreds of people lined the streets of the town to support an anti-knife walk.
It was held in the memory of victims including Clacton teenager Jay Whiston, who died after he was stabbed at a house party in Marlowe Way, Colchester, on September 8.
