It is believed that the victim, a 19 year old male, was getting cash out by Tescos in St Mary’s Street before being robbed by an unknown man.

The incident occurred at around 3:15am on March 15th.

Detective Inspector Dave Jackson said:

I would like to hear from anyone who was in the St Mary’s Street area from about 3am, who may have seen an altercation at and adjacent to the cash machine outside Tesco Express.

I would also like to speak to anyone who may have seen a group of men in the church yard between about 2.45 am and 3.30, as they may have vital information which could help this investigation.
