A MAN was robbed at knifepoint as he rode his mobility scooter in a park on Friday afternoon.

The 56-year-old was attacked near to the duck pond in Orford Park by two assailants wearing dark clothing at around 4.15pm on June 4.

These men stole a quantity of cash before fleeing the area on foot in the direction of Orford Green, then continued onto Birtles Road.

Cheshire Police are appealing for information from members of the public over the incident.

Detective constable Joe Davies said: “The victim was in Orford Park with his mobility scooter when the money was taken from him by two suspects, who were dressed in dark clothing.

“We have been checking CCTV and patrolling the area as part of our enquiries, and are also appealing to the public for information.

“I am encouraging anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen the victim or two males running away from the park after the incident took place to get in touch.

“If you have any other information which could assist the investigation, please call us on 101 and quote IML 1004851.”
