Man Robbed In Cheltenham

Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was robbed in Cheltenham during the early hours of Thursday January 11th.

The 38 year-old man, who comes from Cheltenham, had been walking along Grosvenor Street between 1.25am and 1.40am when he was approached by two men.

The men grabbed him and demanded money before taking 180 cash from the victim's wallet.

The pair then made off from the scene down an alley next to Grosvenor Hall.

One of the offenders is described as white with a slight build. He was wearing a balaclava, dark woollen gloves and a dark tracksuit top and trousers.

The second male was around 6ft 2ins tall with a stocky build. He wore a knee length, dark coloured puffa jacket.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact Cheltenham police on 0845 090 1234, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting incident number 15 of January 11.
