Police appeal after man is robbed in Cheltenham

Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was robbed in Cheltenham during the evening of Wednesday December 20.

The 19-year-old local man was walking along the Honeybourne Line between Waitrose and Queen's Road at around 6pm when he was pushed to the floor from behind.

An unknown offender took the victim's mobile phone, a black Samsung D900 Quadband, before running away from the scene.

The victim suffered superficial injuries as a result of the attack but he did not need any medical treatment.

The offender is believed to be a man, around 6ft tall, who was wearing white trainers, grey jogging bottoms and a dark hooded top.

Anybody with any information is asked to call 0845 090 1234, or Crimestoppers anonymously 0800 555 111, quoting reference number 511 of December 20.
