POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a man was robbed of cash in Worcester city centre.

The incident took place in Crown Passage on Friday, April 21 between 1.20pm and 1.30pm, where a 21-year-old man is reported to have engaged in a conversation with two other men outside McDonald’s on Angel Street.

One of the two males then followed the victim down Angel Street and into Crown Passage, where the victim was asked to change some money.

It is believed the offender, described as a white man in his mid 20s with blond hair and a thin build, wearing a grey tracksuit and a grey Nike baseball cap with a white ‘Swoosh’, snatched the money from the victim’s hand and ran down Broad Street towards Mothercare.

The 21-year-old man chased after the thief, but he was last seen by the traffic lights of Rings and Needles tattoo shop.

During the pursuit, the victim dropped a white wallet which is described as having $100 signs on it, which was also taken.

The second suspect is described as a black man, approximately 6ft with a thin build, wearing a black coat and a black bag with a Rastafarian flag design on the straps.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information that could help police with their enquiries is urged to call 101 and quote incident 530S of Friday, April 21, 2017.

Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 .
