DETECTIVES are today hunting three robbers after a man was targeted on a Greenock Street.

The 58-year-old victim had his mobile phone and a two-figure sum of cash taken from him on Hastie Street in the night-time incident.

The three assailants ran off following the robbery which occurred at around 9pm last Friday.

Police are appealing for information on the incident and are reviewing CCTV footage.

It is understood that the victim did not require hospital treatment.

Detective Sergeant Stuart Young said: “I am appealing to anyone who was in Hastie Street around the time to think back and consider if they saw anything, did you perhaps see three males acting suspiciously? If you have any information, please do get in touch with us.

“I would also like to ask anyone with dash cams to check their equipment and there could be images on there which could assist our investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Police Scotland via 101, quoting incident number 2842 of 20 April 2024. Alternatively, please call Crimestoppers where you can give your information anonymously.
