Main article content
Police in Chester are appealing for witnesses following the robbery of an elderly man in the city.
At around 2pm on Wednesday 2 November the man in his 70s was approached by a man on Boundary Lane at its junction with Stanley Drive. The man forced the victim to hand over cash.
The suspect is described as white, tall and broad shouldered, wearing a dark coat and dark trousers.
DS Paul Davis said:
“Targeting a vulnerable elderly man is reprehensible and I hope it spurs people into getting in touch with any information that may help, whether that’s dashcam footage, or any information on the person responsible. The same goes for anyone who witnessed the robbery but has not yet spoken to police.”
