Worcester Editorial 9th Jun, 2015 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

A MAN had his wallet and phone stolen after he was pushed to the ground in a robbery on Tolladine Road.

The victim was walking by Bradford’s Building Supplies next to the Great Western Railway Club on Sunday (May 31) between 5.20am and 5.45am.

The 30-year-old suffered slight injuries after he was shoved to the floor by a man described as a “scruffy looking” white man in his late twenties or early thirties, who demanded his wallet and phone and searched his pockets.

The offenders is about 5ft 6ins and spoke with a Polish accent. He wore a dark navy or black coloured tracksuit, thought to be Adidas, with white stripes down the sides of the jacket and trousers.

Police believe he was with two other men, who were not involved in the robbery but stood near by, one who also had a Polish accent.

All three males were about the same height, wore dark coloured tracksuits and one was a stockier build than the others.

Officers are appealing for witnesses who may have been driving past, seen anything suspicious in the area or been flagged down by the victim during the incident.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the police on the non emergency 101 number or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
