Police appeal for "vital witness" following Harrogate robbery of 60-year-old man

Published by The Stray FM News Team at 12:13pm 26th February 2019. (Updated at 12:17pm 26th February 2019)

Officers are appealing for a person who they believe may have been a vital witness to a robbery in Harrogate earlier this month.

Shortly before 5pm on Sunday 17 February a 60-year-old man was robbed on Skipton Road with an amount of money being taken from his wallet.

The victim suffered facial injuries and a broken rib during the assault and was taken to hospital for treatment.

Following a number of enquiries officers would now like to trace a man who is described as black, possibly a teenager and lives in the local Bilton area.

He was seen riding a black Trek Remedy full suspension push bike.

Officers stress that this man is being treated as a potential witness to the incident and encourage him to come forward and speak with them.

A 29-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the robbery and remains under investigation.

Anyone who can assist with the investigation is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police quoting reference 12190030063.

Information can also be provided anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
