Without saying anything, the suspect – who was riding a bike at the time – snatched the man’s wallet and took out cash then rode off.

The victim had just been to the cash point in John Street before making his way on foot to the promenade.

The suspect is described as having a ‘foreign’ appearance. He is described as being in his mid 20s, around 5ft 7 with a slim build and short, dark hair.
