Good Sa­mar­i­tan could help trace rob­bers

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

PO­LICE have launched an ap­peal to find a good Sa­mar­i­tan who helped a man af­ter he was robbed.

The vic­tim, a 39-yearold man, was walk­ing along Park Lane, Mac­cles­field, with two men on Sun­day, March 6, some­time be­tween 1.30am and 2am.

As they ap­proached the Park Lane un­der­pass the vic­tim, who is from Con­gle­ton, was knocked un­con­scious and robbed by his com­pan­ions.

When he came round the vic­tim was helped by a smartly dressed man in a black coat who of­fered to call an am­bu­lance.

Po­lice are hunt­ing for the of­fend­ers who were both white and in their 20s. The first had short brown, brushed for­ward and wore a dis­tinc­tive blue jacket with the white logo ‘Ex­ide’ across the shoul­ders on the back and on the front left side of the jacket. The se­cond man had short brown hair with thick side­burns and wore a long-sleeved navy blue shirt with dark trousers.

DC Jennie Martin said: “We are cur­rently fol­low­ing a num­ber of lines of en­quiry and as part of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion I am keen to speak to any­one who be­lieves that they have any in­for­ma­tion that could help us to trace the two men in­volved in this in­ci­dent.

“I’m par­tic­u­larly keen to speak to the good Sa­mar­i­tan who as­sisted the vic­tim fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent.”

Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion can call po­lice on 101 quot­ing in­ci­dent num­ber 125 of 6/3/2016 or anony­mously to Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111.
