A MAN'S watch was stolen during a street robbery in Kidderminster.

The incident happened between 9.45am and 10.30am on Friday, June 6, in Bewdley Road.

The victim, a 35-year-old man, was walking along Bewdley Road, past Kidderminster Hospital, when he was approached by a slim, 6ft tall man wearing a dark blue or jet black jumper, dark blue tracksuit bottoms and black trainers.

The victim did not sustain any injuries but was shaken by the incident.
