Witnesses sought following robbery in park in Chard

We’re appealing for help following a robbery of a vulnerable man in Chard.

The incident happened between 7.45-8pm on Monday 29 April in Jocelyn Park. The victim – am an in his 40s – was riding his red Carrera mountain bike – through the park when a group of four youths called him over.

They asked for a cigarette which the victim gave them and then one of them asked for a 50p piece. While the victim was looking for the money, one of the group grabbed notes from the wallet.

The same suspect that took the cash then grabbed the bike from the victim and rode off in the direction of Millfield.
