A father was robbed in front of his eight-year-old son on the seafront in Bognor
The 40-year-old was walking in Marine Drive West next to the beach at 4.45pm on Thursday, January 30 when a man approached him and threatened him.
He handed over his watch and the thief ran off towards Silverston Avenue.
