Detectives in Bournemouth are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after an alleged robbery in the Boscombe area of the town - with one person being arrested.

The victim was allegedly hit to the floor, kicked repeatedly and had a quantity of cash stolen. 

Detective Constable Michelle Lawrence, of Bournemouth and Poole CID, said: 

"The incident spilled into the road and I am keen to speak to anyone who saw or heard anything. I am also particularly keen to trace a man who stopped and spoke to the victim." 

One of the alleged offenders was described as a black man, five feet ten inches tall, had short hair and some facial hair. He wore a distinctive dark quilted parker-style jacket, blue jeans and trainers with white soles.

The second man was described as black, around six feet tall with a small head. He wore small round glasses, a navy blue or black beanie hat, dark top, blue jeans and trainers with white soles.
