Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was allegedly robbed by three people in Workington.

The victim, a 29-year-old man from the town, was approached by three men and asked for a lighter.

One of the men then assaulted him before threatening him with a knife.

They stole two gold rings, a gold chain and a watch, then made off from the scene in a black hatchback car.

The incident occurred at some point between 5pm and 5:13pm on 29 April on Bolton Street.

Fortunately the victim only suffered minor injuries but the incident has left him understandably distressed.

I’d like to take this opportunity to appeal to anyone with any information to get in touch. Your information could be vital to our investigation.

– Detective Chief Inspector Roy Ledingham, West Cumbria CID
