AN elderly man was robbed in Cheltenham earlier this month.
The 84-year-old was walking along Wilson Street at 11.30am when a man approached him from behind. The man yanked the victim’s satchel bag, sending him falling towards the ground where he hit his head.
The bag was stolen and the offender fled in a grey-coloured vehicle.
The victim managed to avoid injuries as a result of the incident.
A police investigation into the robbery continues. Detectives have released CCTV footage of a Kia Cerato hatchback and asked for anyone who recognises it to come forward.
