A man was grabbed from behind before being robbed during an attack in Wellingborough.

Police are appealing for information after the robbery which took place on Saturday (January 26) between 11.10pm and 11.20pm in Gold Street in the town.

A police spokesman said: “A 34-year-old man was crossing Gold Street at the junction with Ferrestone Drive.

“He was approached from behind by two men who grabbed him by his clothing and forced him across the road and onto the floor.

“One of the offenders searched him and removed a money bag from one of his pockets, containing a small amount of cash.

“Both offenders then left in the direction of the Hemmingwell estate.”

The first offender was a white man, in his mid-thirties, about 5ft 8in and of chunky build. He wore a parka-style coat with the hood up, dark trousers and white trainers.

The second offender was a white man, about 20-years-old, 5ft 7in and of skinny build. He wore dark clothing and a white Adidas baseball cap.

The police spokesman added: “We would like to speak to the occupants of a silver-coloured BMW which stopped to allow the men to cross Gold Street.”
