Man attacked and robbed in street
A GANG of men attacked and robbed a man just moments after he withdrew cash.
The victim, a 25-year-old man from Rayleigh, had just taken out money from a Barclays cashpoint on Grays High Street when the attack happened.
He was approached by four men who tried to snatch the cash from his hand.
The plucky victim at first managed to shrug them off and continued walking off down the High Street.
But, as he reached the junction of Wharf Road, the gang of thugs attend him and stole his bag, containing the cash, before fleeing.
The attack happened at 6pm on Friday.
