A man walking in Letchworth had his iPad stolen by a robber who pushed him into a fence – and police have today appealed for witnesses.

The robbery happened in Broughton Hill between 9.45pm and 9.55pm on Sunday, February 26, when the victim – a man in his 30s – was walking with his iPad in his hands.

He was approached from behind by someone who pushed him into a fence and stole the iPad. The robber then made off on foot through the alleyway on Broughton Hill.

The victim initially gave chase, but lost the robber.

Det Con Kerry Burrows, who is investigating, said officers believed a dog-walker may have seen the chase.
