Man robbed

A MAN needed hospital treatment after being punched in the face and then robbed on Bridlington seafront.

Police say the 36-year-old had left the Loop bar in Esplanade at around 3am on Sunday when he was punched in the face by a man.

He walked away but when he reached the grassed area by Leisure World he was attacked from behind by a man, possibly the same man that had punched him two minutes earlier.

The victim had his mobile phone and house keys stolen and needed treatment at Bridlington Hospital for black eyes, a swollen nose and facial cuts.
