Police appeal for witnesses after Congleton street robbery
Main article content
Police in Congleton are appealing for witnesses following a street robbery in the town.
Sometime between 2.20pm and 2.30pm on Sunday 22 December a 35-year-old man was walking along Borough Road when a silver Ford Fiesta drove past. He then heard a man speak to him from behind and turned round but then carried on walking towards Bromley Road.
As he noticed the silver Fiesta was stopped in the road he was suddenly dragged to the floor and saw the man who spoke to him now with another man. This man pointed a knife at him demanding his wallet. The two men then fled to the silver Fiesta and were driven off by a third man toward Brunswick Street.
