A delivery driver was robbed at gunpoint when he was lured to an Essex street with a bogus Chinese food order.

The incident happened in Middleton Row, South Woodham Ferrers, at about 10pm on Saturday.

The 26-year-old male local victim, was threatened by a man dressed in black, wearing a balaclava, who had a gun which the victim thinks may not have been real. He was struck round the neck with the pistol and left with a minor injury.

The suspect stole his wallet, containing a small sum of cash, and his car keys, which were later found nearby by a member of the public.

The suspect is described as 20-25 and of mixed heritage. Police believe he may be local, as he seemed to know the nearby alleyway and area when he ran from the scene.
