An unknown man then got out of the van and got into the passenger side of the victim’s vehicle whilst the victim was still inside.  The man then said to the victim: “Have you got any money for me?”

When the victim refused the man snatched the victim’s bag which contained cash, bank cards and a diary.  He then ran off.

The suspect, who took the bag, is described as: white, of medium build, having dark, short hair, aged in his 20’s and wearing a dark, hooded fleece.

Another man was seen in the driver’s seat of the white van.  He is described as white, aged in 50’s,  partially bald with brown/grey hair around the side of his head, of medium build and wearing a long sleeved, dark coloured top.

Det Con Sonia Marsh said:  “This is a fairly busy residential area, someone may have seen these men.  Do you recognise their descriptions? “Also, did you see a van of this description in this area around 5pm on this date?”
