A man was taken to hospital with a stomach wound after he was beaten and robbed in the street.

The 46-year-old was targeted at 8.45pm on Tuesday as he walked along a path near Rowanberry Avenue, Braunstone Frith, Leicester.

A man approached him and punched him in the head and stomach.

The attacker then searched through the victim's pockets before stealing his phone and some cash.

The victim then realised he was bleeding from a wound in his stomach and called an ambulance.

Police are trying to establish whether the injury was caused by a knife or another sharp object.

He was taken to the Leicester Royal Infirmary where his condition was last night described as stable.

Detective Constable Dave Rock said: "This was a nasty assault which could have left the victim with some serious injuries.

"Thankfully he is now making a good recovery.

"It's important that we build up a complete picture of events about this incident and that is why we need anyone with any information about the robbery, or the person involved – no matter how insignificant it may seem – to get in touch."

The suspect is white, 25 to 30 and approximately 6ft. He was wearing a grey hooded top, dark bottoms and gloves.

Contact Det Con Rock on 101 or Crimestoppers, which is anonymous, on 0800 555 111.
