Police hunt two suspects after alleyway robbery
Detectives are hunting two men in connection with a town centre robbery.
The pair are wanted after a man was pushed to the ground, attacked and had his phone, watch and cash stolen.
Officers have now released a CCTV image of the men.
The incident happened in Ashford on May 15 but the appeal was issued last Friday after reviewing forensic evidence and CCTV.
The victim was walking through the alleyway from Elwick Road which runs through Victoria Park to Jemmett Road.
A police spokesman said: “The victim told police he first noticed two men sitting on concrete bol- lards, opposite the entrance to a road bridge from Elwick Road at around 3.30am.
“It is alleged they approached him and offered him drugs and after the victim refused he was chased and pushed to the ground.”
The victim was then struck several times before the suspects left with his phone and Hugo Boss watch.
He suffered a split lip and some other minor injuries.
The men are described as being white and possibly Eastern European. They were of medium height, slim build and wore dark clothing.
