Detectives in Chesterfield are appealing for information after a man was assaulted and had his camera stolen.

The 19-year-old victim was walking along Cutthorpe Road in the early hours of the morning when a car with three men in it pulled up next to him.

One of the men asked the victim for a lighter before getting out of the car and punching him.

The victim then dropped his bag and the offender picked it up, got back in the car and drove off.

The bag contained expensive camera equipment including two Canon cameras, two lenses, and a tripod.

The robbery took place at around 1.30am on Wednesday, September 5.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
