Police have appealed for public assistance after a man was pushed to the ground and robbed of his laptop while walking along Princes Bridge on September 13.

Investigators have been told a 44-year-old man was approached by three men about 8.40pm before they allegedly demanded that he hand over his wallet and threatened to hit him.

After the victim refused, the alleged attackers began assaulting him.

“As the victim tried to run away, he was dragged to the ground by one of the offenders,” a police spokesperson said.

“While on the ground the trio stole the victim’s laptop from his backpack before they ran from the scene.”

Melbourne Embona task force officers are investigating.

They have released CCTV footage and images of three men they believe may be able to assist with their enquiries.

The men are believed to be Caucasian and aged in their 20s. •

Anyone who witnessed the incident or with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
