Man Robbed in his Vehicle in Grangetown

Police are appealing for information after a 59-year-old man was robbed whilst sat in his car at the traffic lights at the junction of Church Lane and Fabian Road in Grangetown.

The incident occured between 02:50am and 3:05am on Saturday 4th April when two men approached the victim in his vehicle. One of the men opened the doors and repeatedly punched the victim in the face and both males demanded for the victim to hand over his cash.
