Officers are appealing for information after a man was robbed of his wallet and cash in Brighton.

A man was walking along East Street between 4am and 5am on Sunday, March 12, when he was approached by a man who started talking to him, police said.

They then reportedly walked into an alleyway, and the man suddenly punched the 26-year-old victim in the face. The man's wallet containing cash and cards was then stolen, and the suspect fled the scene, according to police.

Police have now released CCTV of a man they wish to speak to in connection with the incident.

The suspect is described as aged about 21, of mixed race, slim, 6' 3" and was wearing a baseball cap.

Anyone who witnessed the robbery or recognises the man in the CCTV is asked to contact police by emailing 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk quoting serial 306 of 12/03.
