Detectives investigating a robbery in Ashford have released an image, shown above, of a person they want to talk to.

At around 9.55am on Sunday 14 November 2021, a man in his 30s was cycling in Newtown Road when it is reported he was assaulted by two men in an underpass.

Face struck

The suspects are alleged to have struck the victim’s face with a heavy item in a carrier bag and then further assaulted him whilst on the ground.

Detective Sergeant Tony Edwards said: ‘Investigators have been checking CCTV in the area following this incident and are now releasing an image of a man who may be able to assist us with our enquiries.
‘Anybody who recognises him is urged to call our appeal line at their earliest opportunity.’
