Tilbury: Man robbed and attacked with hammer

Tilbury Civic

ESSEX Police are appealing for information following a robbery in Tilbury where a man was threatened with a hammer and forced to withdraw cash.

The 21-year-old victim was walking near to Post Office in Civic Square when he was grabbed by a man shortly after midnight today, Saturday, May 4.

The suspect told the man to act normally and withdraw money from a nearby cash machine.

The victim withdrew a three-figure sum and was then hit in the stomach with the hammer.

He described seeing his attacker running off with two other people.

One of the men wore a grey hoodie, a blue body warmer, jogging bottoms and dark trainers. He was described as having a beard.

Essex Police carried out a search in the area to locate the men without success.

Anyone with information is asked to call Grays CID on 101 quoting crime reference 42/69343/19 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.


  1. Tory police cuts strike again! If there were more police on the streets the number of violent crimes might go down and the streets might be safer. No chance of that happening with the Tories in government though, not unless one of their number becomes a victim themselves and then it’ll become their number one priority.

  2. We need more police on the streets but we also need tougher deterrents. The courts are far to lenient.
    Labour camps are what we need.
