A man had his wallet stolen, which included sentimental items, during a robbery in Peterborough.

The victim, a man in his 30s, was walking on Bourges Boulevard in Peterborough at approximately 6:30am on April 14.

He was approached by a man on a bicycle who asked if he wanted to buy a mobile phone.

When the victim declined, the man has lunged into his pocket to try and grab his wallet.

After a struggle, the victim was pushed to the ground and the suspect ran away with the stolen wallet, which contained sentimental items.

Detectives have since released images of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident. 

Anyone with information, or anyone who recognises the man in the images, is asked to contact police online quoting reference 35/26182/24. Those without internet access should call 101.
