At around 11.30pm, the victim was walking along Moor Path, which runs from Brook Street to Cromwell Road, when he passed three men sitting on a wall. They assaulted him while demanding money, and then took the wallet.

They then made off towards New Bedford Road.

The first man is described as black, slender, 5ft 8ins, with a local accent, short hair and was wearing a black long sleeved top, black trousers and a black baseball cap.
