Man robbed on Riverside Walk in Norwich

A 21-year-old man had his phone stolen on Riverside Walk, in Norwich.

On Thursday the man was walking along a footpath towards the city centre when he was approached by a man who asked him the time. The victim took out his mobile phone and told the man, who was carrying a sports bag, it was 12.50pm.

The man, who was described as in his mid 20s and wearing a blue t-shirt, walked past, but returned and demanded the phone.

He became aggressive and the victim gave him his phone.

Police would like to speak a middle-aged male cyclist who was seen on the path at the same time, or anyone else who may have been in the area.
