A 62-year-old man was the victim of a robbery as he walked home from a pub in Bagshot at the weekend.
The man was approached from behind by a group of three men on Whitmoor Road just minutes into Saturday (00.05 am 22 September). One of the suspects kicked the local resident in the kidneys, causing him to fall to the ground. The rest of the group then repeatedly kicked the victim and demanded he hand over his money.
One offender stole seven pounds from the victim’s pocket before the group of suspects made off in the direction of Bagshot.

As a result of the offence the victim suffered cuts and bruises to his face and body.
Detective Constable Matt Gamble investigating said: “This was a vicious attack on a gentleman who was just making his way home after a night at the pub. Unfortunately due to the nature of the offence the victim was not able to see the perpetrators, other than to describe them as wearing white trainers. Surrey Police will not tolerate this type of violence in our neighbourhoods and I would appeal to anyone who has any information which might help locate these offenders to contact officers as soon as possible.”
