Robbers steal bank card, neck chain and money in Wisbech attack
ROBBERS took money, a bank card and a neck chain after attacking a 24-year-old man in Wisbech.
The victim was walking home from a night out at about 1.15am on Saturday when he was approached by a group of men and one woman in Churchill Road.
An argument began before the victim was punched and kicked. They stole the money, bank card and neck chain from him in Park Road.
The man suffered minor injuries.
The attack is believed to be linked to an earlier exchange of words between the victim and the group outside Toppings restaurant at 9pm on Friday.
DC Ahmed Ishaq, investigating, said: “We would like to hear from anyone who may have seen this group anywhere in Churchill Road, Kings Walk alleyway, William Road, or Park Road where the robbery took place.
“This was a nasty attack and any information no matter how small could help us bring the offenders to justice.”
