Police are appealing for information after a man was threatened with a knife and robbed of cash in Wellington.
The victim - aged 21 - was walking along Whitchurch Drive when the incident occurred some time around 12 noon to 12.30pm on Sunday.(12 August)
As he walked under the railway bridge, towards Texaco(known locally as Furrows Service Station) on Haybridge Road, he was approached by two Asian males.

The offenders ran off towards the back of Crescent Road in Hadley.
The victim summoned help from fire-fighters at a nearby fire station. Officers at the station contacted police.
The victim was extremely shaken and suffered bruising to his arm. He did not require medical treatment.
Police are investigating the matter and are eager to speak to anyone with information.
