Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Front Page -

DE­TEC­TIVES are hunt­ing two youths af­ter a man was robbed of his shop­ping plus £200 and his mobile phone in Run­corn.

Cheshire po­lice said the 59-year-old vic­tim was walk­ing along The Hove in Mur­dishaw at 10.30pm on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 3, when two boys ap­proached and de­manded his trol­ley.

The first mug­ger grabbed it and broke the han­dle.

They both then took hold of the trol­ley and made off along The Hove leav­ing a trail of food shop­ping. The vic­tim gave chase as the youths fled across the busway and onto the path­way lead­ing to Com­pass Close.

A Cheshire po­lice spokes­woman said the first boy was de­scribed as tall and slim.

He was wear­ing dark clothes in­clud­ing a ● black North­face jacket with the hood up and the draw­strings pulled tight.

The sec­ond boy was smaller and chub­bier than the first and dressed the same.

DC Natha­nial Walkowiak said: “Not only was the vic­tim left shocked by his or­deal but he had around £200 in cash and a new mobile phone which was an 02 ZTE A110 in the shop­ping trol­ley at the time it was stolen.

“I would urge any­one with in­for­ma­tion to con­tact me so we can find those re­spon­si­ble.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should con­tact DC Nathaniel Walkowiak on 101 quot­ing in­ci­dent num­ber 12 of Oc­to­ber 4.

Al­ter­na­tively in­for­ma­tion can be given anony­mously by con­tact­ing Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111.
