Appeal for witnesses after a robbery in Breadsall

Posted on 3rd January 2018

Officers investigating a robbery are appealing to the public for information.

On Tuesday, January 2 at around 1.15pm a woman was walking along a path, known locally as The Slip. It was near to the crossroads on the path in the direction of the Windmill Pub, Hilltop.

She recalls seeing three men, all aged mid-teens to early twenties who were stood at the crossroads.

One of the men approached her, pulled her phone from her pocket and demanded that she hand over her belongings. He was described as white, of average build, 5ft 7-8ins tall with a local accent and dark ginger stubble. He was wearing blue jeans, a dark coloured hoody and had a beanie type hat.

The woman was then hit on her shoulder by what was believed to be a metal bar which caused her to fall to the floor. The men then went through the woman’s coat pockets and ran off.

The other men were all white and were wearing dark coloured hoodies.
