The search is on to find the two men who punched a young man in the face before attempting to rob him in St Albans last week.
A 19 year old was walking along Alban Way between Morrisons and Camp Road at about 11.30am last Friday (6) when two men approached him from behind.
The victim sustained cuts, bruises and a broken tooth after he was ‘punched to the floor’ and was shouted at to hand over his belongings.
The man could only give a description of one of the men, who he said was white, aged 19-20, around 5ft7 tall and of large build. He was wearing a black tracksuit, quilted gloves and a balaclava with a red pattern.
Nothing was taken as the two men were disturbed by a cyclist who rode around the corner.
