Muggers who attacked a man near a Norwich park were scared away when a member of the public intervened.
The victim, a man in his 20, was approached by two men who hit him a number of times before demanding cash.
It happened on North Park Avenue, close to Eaton Park, at about 6.40pm on Wednesday, December 30.
But a member of the public intervened, which led to the muggers running off.
The victim suffered bruising around his eye because of the attack.
