Police have released CCTV images of a man they want to speak to, after a man was robbed in Stevenage while suffering a heart attack.

It happened at around 3.30pm on Saturday October 25 in the underpass off St George’s Way, which is close to the town’s museum.

The victim, a 27 year old man, felt unwell and was sitting on the pathway. He didn't realise he was suffering from a heart attack.

A person then approached him, stole his mobile phone, a black and white iPhone 4s, and then ran off in the direction of Penn Way. The victim tried to chase him but collapsed.

He was taken to hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

Assistant Investigator Karen Brown is investigating and said: “Although the images are not of the best quality, the clothing the man is wearing is quite distinctive and we hope this will help identify him as he may be able to assist us with our enquiries. If you recognise this man please contact me as soon as possible.”

Anyone who recognises the man, or has any other information in relation to the incident, should contact Assistant Investigator Brown via Hertfordshire Constabulary’s non-emergency number 101. Alternatively call Crimestoppers, the independent charity, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
