Police need to trace a man who may have sustained a facial injury following a robbery in Brandon yesterday (Wednesday).

A 22-year-old man was walking along Bury Road, near the junction with Rattler’s Road, around 10.30pm when he saw a man walking towards him.

As the man passed the 22-year-old he briefly spoke to him and then continued on his way.

Moments later the 22-year-old saw the man running up behind him and he was then grabbed, pushed up against a fence and the man demanded he hand over his valuables.

The 22-year-old took out his wallet and threw it to the ground but was then assaulted. He fought back, punching the offender in the face before making his escape, but then saw the man making off with his wallet, containing cards but no cash.

The 22-year-old sustained reddening to his face but was otherwise uninjured.

The offender is described as white, in his 20s, around 5ft 10in, of slim build, with close shaven hair and wearing a black leather jacket, blue jeans and trainers.

He may have sustained a facial injury as a result of the incident and police are asking anyone who may have information about what happened or the man involved to come forward.

If you were in the area around this time or have details which may help the enquiry please contact Bury St Edmunds CID on 101 quoting reference MH/15/604.
