The victim was then grabbed around the throat and the suspect stole £60 from him. It happened around 4.50pm.

The suspect is described as a black man in his early 30s, around 5ft 4in tall with short black hair. He was wearing a thin blue waterproof coat and black trousers and ran off towards Station Road after taking the money.
