CHESHIRE Police are urging witnesses to come forward after an attempted robbery on a woman in Northwich.

The 48-year-old was approached by two men opposite the entrance to Victoria Infirmary Northwich on Winnington Lane at approximately 6pm on Sunday, September 15.

They demanded that she hand over her phone and money, before taking hold of her and searching her coat.

After being unsuccessful in stealing her phone and money, they ran off down Winnington Hill.

One man is described as being of Asian origin, aged in his 30’s, around 6ft in height and with brown eyes.

He also has a 2-3cm scar next to his left ear and a tooth missing.

At the time, he was wearing all black clothing with toggles on his jacket with a large single pocket on the front and his hood pulled up.

The second man is also described as being of Asian origin, aged in his 30’s and of a chubby build with blue eyes.

He was wearing glasses with metal frames in a rounded shape and had a tooth missing on the right side.

His hooded top was black with a zip up the middle and a tear on the upper left arm.

Detective Constable Neil Wharmby, of Northwich Local Policing Unit, said: “This was understandably a terrifying attempt to rob a woman who was walking down the street on her own.

“While we have been following a number of lines of enquiry, I am also appealing to the public to come forward if they believe they recognise the men described by the victim or saw the incident take place.

“If you have any dashcam footage around the time of the attempted robbery please submit it through to us.

“Any information provided, no matter how small, could really help with our investigation.”

You can provide information by calling Cheshire Police on 101 quoting IML 514100, through the force’s website or anonymously by visiting the Crimestoppers website.
