A man in his 60s was robbed at a cash point in Great Yarmouth.

The victim was approached from behind and assaulted before having his money snatched outside the branch of Nationwide, in King Street.

The suspect got away with £200 and was seen to run off across the Market Place, past the Feathers pub towards Market Gates then Temple Road onto North Market Road.

It happened last Monday (30 January) as the victim was withdrawing cash from the ATM at about 6.30pm.

The suspect is described as a young male, white, and was wearing a black hooded top and grey tracksuit bottoms.

The victim was uninjured but left very shocked by the incident and police would like to hear from any witnesses or anyone who has information.

• Witnesses should contact Det Con Tom Gibbs at Great Yarmouth CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
