Officers are appealing for witnesses following an attempted robbery in Scarborough.
It took place at approximately 1.10am on Wednesday 13 October at the junction of Seamer Road and Falsgrave Road close to the Shell garage and traffic lights.
A 47-year-old man was approached by two other men who asked for cigarettes, and when the victim tried to ignore the men, he was followed and tried to run away. The victim ended up on the ground and the men tried to take property from him.
Two men, aged 22 and 44, were arrested in connection with the incident. They have been released under investigation pending further enquires.
It is believed the victim was trying to attract the attention of traffic during this time and officers are appealing for any witnesses to the incident to come forward. In addition, if anyone has any dashcam footage of the incident, please get in touch.
Dial 101, press 2 and ask to speak to DC Susan Hazelwood. Alternatively, email [email protected]
