A MAN had his arm slashed by a robber who demanded his wallet.

The armed robbery took place in Montague Street, Eynesbury at about 11pm on Wednesday (October 15).

The victim, who is 36 and from the Huntingdon area, was walking back to his car after a night out when he was approached by two men, one of whom barged into him.

This man demanded the victim's wallet and he refused, but then the attacker produced a knife and cut the victim's arm as he went to defend himself.
