Officers from King’s Lynn CID are appealing for witnesses to a robbery which took place in the Walks, King’s Lynn.

At around 10.45pm on Saturday, December 28, a male in his mid-20s was approached from behind by two men who assaulted him and pushed him to the ground, attempting to grab his rucksack. The victim managed to run off without anything being stolen.

They are described as white males with one in his early 20s, around 5ft 7in tall of average build and wearing a dark coloured puffer jacket.

Another, aged between 26 and 28, is approximately 6ft 1in tall of stocky build with short light coloured hair. He was wearing dark jacket with a distinctive yellow/mustard coloured scarf.

The third is believed to be in his mid-20s, of average build and between 5ft 8in and 5ft 10in. He has short dark coloured hair and was wearing a dark jacket and dark jogging bottoms. Anyone with information about this attack should call King’s Lynn CID on 101.
