A MAN was kicked when he refused to hand over money and his wallet during an attempted robbery in Worcester.

The victim, a man in his 40s, was walking along Tolladine Road near to the lower junction of Rose Avenue around 10.10pm last Friday when the robber struck.

He was approached by an unknown man who asked for money. The man then demanded he hand over his wallet but the victim refused to give it to him.

The man is reported to have kicked the victim before making off towards the city centre.

He is described as white, in his early 20s, clean shaven, between 5ft10in tall and 6ft tall, with short brown hair, and was thought to be wearing a blue padded jacket.

Officers believe a number of cars drove past during the incident and they are keen for anyone who saw it to come forward.

They would also like to speak to people who witnessed anyone acting suspiciously or who was in the area at the time.

Anyone with information should call West Mercia Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting incident 857S of Friday, October 13.
