Police are appealing for information after reports that a man was injured during a street robbery in Burton Joyce.
A man in his sixties was walking along Church Road between 8.35pm and 8.55pm on Monday (November 23) when a dark blue van drove past him and stopped.
The man ran onto Main Street where the van driver reportedly caught up with him, punched and kicked him and stole his phone.
The man received injuries which are not life-threatening or life-altering.
The van driver is described as being in his mid twenties to mid thirties. He is believed to be around 5 feet 10 inches tall and was wearing a white t-shirt and dark trousers.
Detective Sergeant Rick Ellis, who is investigating the incident, said: “I would like to hear from anyone locally who may have either seen this incident or have dashcam or CCTV footage which could help the investigation.
“This must have been a really scary incident for the man involved and I would really like the public’s help in finding the person responsible. If you have been in the area or you live nearby, please check your footage and get in touch if you have anything which may be of interest to us. ”
