Police investigate after a man is robbed in Ramsgate

Kent Police

Officers are investigating after a man was robbed in Ramsgate.

Just before midnight on Thursday (September 13), the victim, a man in his 30s, was walking home from an amusement arcade in Queen Street.

A few minutes later, during the early hours of Friday 14 September, he reached Cavendish Street where he heard footsteps behind him. Before he could turn around he was pushed in the back and tripped over.

Whilst on the floor, his money was stolen from his pocket and the suspects ran away, back in the direction of Queen Street.

The victim was unable to get a look at the suspects and is not sure how many people were there.

Officers would like to hear from any witnesses or anyone with information that could assist their enquiries.

Anyone with information should call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting ZY/054623/18.
