A student walking through Moor Park on a Saturday night was robbed at knife-point according to police.Advertisement
Preston Police are appealing for information after the theft when the 25-year-old victim was walking along Moor Park Avenue.
He was close to the tennis courts when he was approached by three men at around 9pm on Saturday (18 March).
One of the trio produced a knife and pointed it at the victim, demanding a bag which contained a black Sony Vaio laptop.
The bag was taken and they ran off across the tennis courts into St Thomas’ Road.
PC Paul Gilfoyle from Preston Police said: “The victim is a student and this laptop contained lots of important work and documents required for his studies.
“We later found the bag minus the laptop and so we are asking anyone who may have been offered a used Sony laptop for sale to come forward.
“Similarly if you witnessed the incident or have any information that could help, please get in touch.”
