POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a man was robbed in Finchampstead last week.
On Wednesday, February 10, at approximately 8:45pm, the victim was walking down Evendons Lane towards Finchampstead, when a man walking in the opposite direction stopped in front of him.
The offender, who was wearing a balaclava and dark puffer-jacket, is said to have hit the victim’s hand before stealing his jacket, which had headphones in.
He made a comment to the victim. Police believe he then got into a vehicle which drove towards Wokingham.
The victim’s thumb was injured, but he did not need hospital treatment.
The offender is thought to be a white man in his 30s.
“I am appealing to anyone who may have witnessed this incident or has dash-cam footage from Evendons Lane at around 8:45pm on Wednesday,” said investigating officer detective constable Rebecca Clough.
