TWO men were robbed in an ambush as they got off a bus in North Derbyshire.

The men were targeted after their bus, from Chesterfield, stopped on Houfton Road, Bolsover.

Police said the victims had just walked onto Cundy Road when they were approached from behind.

One man, aged 20, was pushed to the ground before being punched in his face.

He managed to escape and run off but the other victim - a 65-year-old man - was restrained during the robbery and had his cheque book and mobile phone stolen.

The two offenders ran in the direction of Hilltop.

Witnesses to the robbery at 11.30pm on Monday or anyone with information should call Derbyshire Police on 0345 1233333 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
