A man was assaulted and had cash stolen in a Northampton robbery after he withdrew money from an ATM.

The victim was walking home between 12.10am and 12.30am on Monday, 23 October after withdrawing cash from a Post Office ATM in Kingsley Park Terrace, Northamptonshire Police today revealed.

As he passed the IN’n’OUT car servicing centre, someone punched him from behind, knocking him to the floor.

The offender then stamped on the victim before pulling him to his feet, ripping his jacket and removing a bank card and cash. He passed this to another man before running off.
