Attempted robbery in Woodingdean

08 February 2013

Police would like to hear from anyone who witnessed an attempted robbery which took place at about 5.20pm on Wednesday (6 February) in Woodingdean.
 
The victim, a 34-year-old man from Brighton, was walking alone along Warren Road, next to the car park for the racecourse, when he was approached by three men, all of whom are described as being approximately 17-22 years of age, about 5' 7" tall and of slim build.

They demanded money from the victim and searched his clothing before a member of the public intervened. The trio then ran away towards the Woodingdean area.

A police spokesperson said: "These men escaped empty handed but it was a frightening experience for the victim and we're anxious to hear from anyone who may have seen what happened.
 
"If you have information about this incident, please call police on 101 quoting serial number 1242 of 06/02. Alternatively call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111."
