Big shouldered robber targets Brighton people
Two robberies which took place within ten minutes in Brighton are being linked.
A man was walking along Hartington Road at around 1am on Friday when he was approached by a man who demanded money. He took his bank card and made off towards Lewes Road.
At 1.10am a woman was robbed of her bank card by a man in Melbourne Street who threatened her. He also punched a man who was with the woman.
The suspect is a white man, aged in his mid to late 20s with big shoulders. He had light brown shaven hair and spoke with a strong Irish accent.
Detective Constable Andrew Beaumont said: "These two attacks occurred within a short period of time and were of a violent nature. I would urge anyone with information to come forward."
Call Sussex Police on 101.
