POLICE are hunting two robbers who mugged a man outside a Promenade games stall.

The victim was stood by the darts stall opposite Central Pier in Blackpool when two thugs attacked him.

They stole the man’s cash and car keys before running off down an alleyway which runs down the side of Uncle Peter Websters pub.

A police spokesman said: “Two white men have approached the darts stall and hit the aggrieved. They have taken his cash and car keys.

“The victim declined an ambulance.”

It is not thought any weapons were used in the attack. Police cordoned off the pavement in front of the stall and the ginnel while forensic officers carried out their inquiries.

Detectives have been talking to witnesses and studying CCTV from the area.
