A man who was first asked if he’d lost his wallet then had his own wallet stolen from him.
The victim (67 years old) was approached by a man outside Morrison’s in Dane Road, Seaford. The incident occurred at around 5.45pm on Wednesday, 31st January. The man asked him: “Sorry, sir, have you lost your wallet?”, as he was getting into his car. As the victim pulled out the wallet to check that he hadn’t lost it, the man snatched it from his hand and ran off in the direction of the town centre.
After a very short time, the thief had withdrawn cash from a cash machine at the Halifax in Broad Street.
The perpetrator is described as white, 5′ 8″-5′ 9″, 40-45 years old. He is of stocky build and spoke with a local accent.
