On Monday 29 January, between 2:15pm and 2:30pm, we received reports that an 82 year-old man had been walking up Chapel Street in Petersfield towards Station Road, when another man pushed him to the ground and took an envelope of cash from his pocket. He then ran off in the direction of Station Road.
The man sustained minor cuts and bruises from the incident but did not require hospital treatment.
We are using all the tools at our disposal to locate the man involved, who has been described as:
Approximately 5ft 10 inches
Wearing a blue anorak
We are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident, was in the area at the time, or recognises this description.
