According to the report on the Shropshire Live website, the man was approached by three white men at around 11pm, one with a bike who then attacked him without warning before stealing his rucksack containing a laptop, personal documents and cash.
Here is some free advice for you all: don't walk down the Silkin Way at night on your own with a laptop and cash in your bag. The footpath is unlit, the police and park rangers don't patrol it, it is rarely used after dark and if you get into trouble, nobody will hear you asking for help.
There is a description of the attackers on the Shropshire Live website. If you have any information about the incident, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or give me the details anonymously.
