Takeaway delivery driver punched and robbed in King’s Lynn

A MAN was punched in the face and then robbed while delivering takeaway food in King’s Lynn.

The driver had delivered to an address in Grey Sedge, North Lynn, just before 8pm on Saturday when he noticed three people arguing amongst themselves.

He thought he knew one of them, so called out to the group, but he was mistaken and the group shouted obscenities and threats back to him.

As the driver made his way back to his car, he was punched in the face and the back of the head several times. All the money he had on him was stolen and he sustained a cut lip.

It’s believed that the three men had a sandy coloured Staffie-type dog with them.

Any witnesses are asked to contact DC Hooper on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
