A MAN was robbed of his wallet by two men after pulling in a layby near Alcester.

The 51-year-old was driving his Landrover Freelander towards the town on the A435 by Coughton Court, about 9.30pm on Monday (March 24), when he was flashed by a light coloured VW Golf which was following him.

He pulled into a layby and two men got out of the Golf and pointed to the rear of his car.

As he got out of his car one of the men grabbed his shoulders while the second man removed his wallet from his front pocket.

They left with a large amount of cash and some of his bank cards.

One of the robbers was described as 5ft 10ins, with short dark hair, of wiry build and wearing white tracksuit bottoms with a dark coloured top.

The other was stocky and wore a black three quarter length leather jacket and a woolly hat. One of the men also spoke with an eastern European accent.

Officers would like to hear from anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in the Coughton layby, saw either of the vehicles as they travelled along the A435 and beyond, or has any information which could help them with their enquiries.

Anyone with any information should call Warwickshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
