Police in the Borders are investigating following a robbery on the Black Path, Galashiels.
The incident happened at approximately 12.30pm on Monday, January 15, when a 25-year-old man was walking along the Black Path near to ASDA.
He was then approached by three unknown men, one of which assaulted him.
The attack caused a number of items to drop from the 25-year-old’s pockets, which were then picked up and taken by the three men. The three were last seen walking away from the town centre, towards Langlee.
The 25-year-old sustained a head injury, however he did not require medical attention.
Police were contacted and CID officers are now investigating.
The suspects are described as being in their mid-twenties and wearing dark clothing including hooded tops. Two of the men were wearing hats and all three spoke with local accents.
Detective Sergeant Stephen Halls of Galashiels CID said: “This was a frightening attack on a lone man, who subsequently had a number of items stolen from him.
“We are eager to trace the three men responsible as soon as possible. I would ask anyone who was in the Black Path area around lunchtime on Monday, January 15, and saw anything suspicious, to get in touch with us at their earliest convenience.”
