A MAN was recovering today after suffering a gash to his forehead when he was mugged in Felixstowe.
The 33-year-old was on his way home, walking in Church Lane, Walton, when he was attacked by the robber - a man of Oriental appearance who demanded he hand over his wallet.
Before he had a chance to reply, he was assaulted by the man who hit him over the head with an unknown implement.
The man tried to protect himself but the offender stole his mobile phone and ran off towards Gulpher Road.
The victim made his way home and alerted police. He was later treated in hospital for a three-inch cut to his head.
Detectives investigating the robbery are appealing for anyone who was in the area - around 11.15pm last night - or saw the offender running away to call Felixstowe CID on 01473 613500 or Crimestoppers 0800 555 111.
