A MAN was robbed in broad daylight while walking in Long Ashton.

At about 4.50pm on Tuesday the man in his early 50s was walking up Keedwell

Hill when he was pushed into the side of a vehicle by a person who ran up behind him.

A second person then grabbed a chain on his belt which was attached to his wallet in his pocket and removed it.

The victim tried to grab his wallet but was punched in the arm by the second offender.

Both of them then ran off towards the village community hall and into the play park.

Both are described as about 6ft tall.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
