Gang of robbers steal bag


A gang of four robbers took a man’s bag after first offering him drugs.

The 27-year-old victim was walking to the barbers at 8.30pm on Tuesday (September 23) when four men approached in Porthleven Place, Fishermead.

They offered him khat and, when he refused, they got aggressive and asked for his bag. When he refused and ran away the gang chased him, and when they grabbed him the bag fell to the floor. One offender grabbed the bag and refused to give it back, so the victim ran off.

The offenders were four black men in their twenties, and all wore black hooded tops. Three of the men were around 5ft 11ins and of a stocky build, while the fourth offender was around 6ft 3ins.
