Detectives are appealing for information following a robbery in Chester.
Just before 3.20am on Sunday 22 January, a man was on Eastgate Street, Chester outside the former Debenhams store, when a woman and three men approached and spoke to him.
The woman then grabbed his wallet while the one of the men punched the victim, causing him to fall to the floor. The group then fled towards The Rows.
The woman is described as being aged around 30 with long wavy brown hair, of normal build wearing all black with black jacket and tights.
One of the men was aged mid to late 30s, of normal build with black gloves on his hand and was wearing a black padded coat and black trousers.
Police are now keen to speak to anyone who may have information that could assist officers with their investigation.
Detective Constable Tessa Munt said: “At the time of the offence, Chester city centre would have been busy with people leaving bars and clubs following nights out.
“The victim has been left understandably shaken following this incident and we are doing all we can to locate the people responsible.
“I would appeal to anyone who was in the Eastgate Street area of Chester and may have seen something that didn’t look quite right to get in touch.
“The same goes to anyone who may have been in the area and has dashcam or mobile footage of the offence or offenders.
“Any information, no matter how small, could assist us in finding the offenders and bring them to justice.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact Cheshire Police via the Cheshire Police website quoting IML 1461834 or call 101.
