Police are appealing for information after a driver was robbed of his takeaway delivery at knifepoint in Dursley.

The incident happened between 9.30pm and 9.50pm on Monday, December 17 last year, at a house on Maple Close.

The driver, a 29 year-old man from Dursley, arrived at the property to deliver a takeaway meal. 

Once there he was approached by a man who was carrying a knife. 

The offender moved the knife towards the victim and then punched him. 

The offender was then joined by a second man who demanded the victim hand over the takeaway, at which point the victim threw the food down and ran away.

Two men have been arrested in connection with the robbery and bailed pending further inquiries.

Police are asking anyone with information that could help the investigation to call them on 101 quoting incident 4 of December 18.

Alternatively, information can be given anonymously by calling Crimestoppers, free of charge, on 0800 555 111, or via the charity's website.

In some cases Crimestoppers may offer a reward of up to £1,000 where information leads to a conviction.
