Press Release   •   Nov 03, 2018 14:10 GMT

We are appealing for witnesses after a 19-year-old man was robbed on the foot bridge between Marryat Road and Davis Field at 7.30pm on Friday 2 November.

A man dressed in a white zip up top and black tracksuit bottoms approached the 19-year-old man and demanded his mobile phone, cash and bag. The man in the white top then held out a steak knife and grabbed the man’s phone with his other hand and ran off.

Another man then gave chase to the suspect and got the victim’s phone back.

We are especially keen to speak to the man that helped retrieve the victim’s phone. Was this you?
