Mystery of the robbery victim who disappeared


A MAN was attacked and robbed in the street at Warrington – and then disappeared without reporting the incident to police.
Now detectives are appealing for the victim to get in touch with them.
They say another robbery occurred in the same area shortly afterwards when three men threatened a 22-year-old man with a knife and stole his posessions and believe the two incidents could be linked.
A witness reported a man had been assaulted at around 12.20am on April 12 in Knutsford Road, near the Co-Op.
The witness reported the incident to the police and officers attended the scene but the victim was not there.
At 2am there was a further report of a street robbery in the same area, where the 22-year-old approached by three men and threatened with a knife. The men made off with his belongings.
Two men, aged 22 and 27, have been arrested in connection with this offence.
Detective Sergeant Mark Naylor said: “The assault was seen by a witness but the victim has not reported the incident up to now. The second incident was reported only a few hours later and there is a possibility they could be linked.
“If you were in the area around these times and have dashcam footage or you witnessed anything that may aid our investigation, I’d urge you to contact us.
“I would like to appeal directly to the victim to get in touch to let us know that he is okay and to help us with our ongoing enquiries.
“We also want to speak to anyone who believes they may know who the victim is.”
Anyone with information that may help should call police on 101, quoting IML 371842, give the details via https://cheshire.police.uk/contact/general-enquiries or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
