We are appealing for information following reports a young man was punched and threatened in Arbouretum Park in Derby.
It happened between around 8pm and 8.30pm on Monday 23 May. A man was walking in to the park from Grove Street, and was not far from the fountain, when he was approached by a group of young men.
He was then allegedly pulled to the ground, punched, kicked and threatened by the men who demanded his wallet, phone and money.
They are described as being aged in their late teens or early 20s, tall and had been wearing face coverings. One of the men spoke with an eastern European accent, one had been wearing a white jacket, one a black tracksuit and one had been wearing a blue tracksuit.
The victim managed to hold on to his belongings and the group have left. A member of the public has then noticed the young man and stayed with him until a relative arrived to help.
We would like to hear from anyone who may have seen the incident, heard anything suspicious or have any information about what happened.
