POLICE are appealing for information after a 60-year-old woman was robbed on the seafront at Felixstowe yesterday.

The woman was walking along the Sea Road promenade, opposite Holland Road, at about 4.30pm-4.45pm, when she became aware of someone behind her and felt a tap on her shoulder.

She looked around and was pushed by one of two men who took a wallet from her pocket.

The woman shouted out and the men removed the cash before throwing the wallet back at her. Both men then ran off along the promenade.

Officers also need to speak to anyone who was in the area around this time and anyone who may have information about the offenders.
