CCTV images released following violent robbery in Sheffield

Detectives investigating a robbery in Sheffield yesterday (Tuesday 18 June) have released CCTV images of two men they would like to identify in connection with the incident.

At around 12.30pm, it is reported that the victim was sitting in his van on Rutland Street eating his lunch, when an unknown man opened the vehicle door and grabbed the victim’s mobile phone off his lap.

On getting out of the vehicle, the victim was then subjected to a violent assault by two men, being punched several times in the head and stamped on.

DC John Briers, investigating, said: “The victim’s ordeal did not end there, the two men then reportedly went through his pockets, stealing his van keys, driving licence and bank cards before leaving the scene in the direction of Woodside Lane.

“We’ve released CCTV pictures today of two men we’d like to speak to in connection with this incident, I’d very much like to hear from them or anyone who knows them.”

The 44-year-old victim suffered severe bruising as a result of the incident.
