TWO men were robbed after getting off a bus.

The pair were approached from behind on Cundy Road, Bolsover, when they alighted the bus from Chesterfield on Houfton Road. They had seen a couple of dark skinned males walking in the opposite direction but crossed the road.

One victim (20) was pushed to the ground before being punched in the face. He managed to escape at which point he ran away up Cundy Road.

During this time the other man, aged 65, was restrained whilst one of the suspects stole a chequebook and mobile phone. The two offenders ran in the direction of Hilltop.

The older man wasn’t injured but the younger one received scratches to his face and neck.

Anyone who witnessed the robbery or who has any information about the offence should contact the police in 0345 123 33 33 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
