Officers are appealing for information after a knifepoint robbery in Stoke-on-Trent.
We were called just before 3.30pm on Wednesday 15 November to Lichfield Street in Hanley.
The victim, a man in his 20s, was walking along a canal footpath, near to the bridge behind the Emma Bridgewater Factory and Lidl car park, when he was approached by two masked men on e-scooters.
One of the suspects grabbed the victim. He was holding a small knife and told him to hand over his belongings.
They then took the victim’s black Emporio Armani bag. The bag had a white EA7 logo on the front and contained £280 in cash.
The suspects left on the e-scooters in the direction of Botteslow Street.
Both men are described as white, around 5ft 8ins, and in their late-teens to early-twenties. One was wearing a light blue tracksuit. The second man had on a dark blue tracksuit.
Officers are reviewing CCTV footage of the area at the time and are appealing to anyone who saw what happened to get in touch.
If you have any information that can help us, call 101, quoting incident 440 of 15 November, or message us using Live Chat on our website. To report anonymously, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
