Robbers have taken money from a man in Derby.

At around 7.45am on Monday, May 8, a 67-year-old man got back to his home in Arbor Close, having been to the nearby ATM at Sainsbury’s in Monk Street to withdraw cash.

As he got off his mobility scooter, two men approached him and pushed him to the ground. They went through his pockets and stole his wallet, which contained cash and cards.

The men both wore dark clothing and dark hooded tops. They ran off toward Abbey Street.
