Police are appealing for information after a robbery in Newcastle.

At around 1.45am in the early hours of Saturday, May 20, a 41-year-old man was approached by three men outside For Your Eyes Only club between Neville Street and Westgate Road.

The men have pushed the man to the floor and stolen cash from his wallet.

Officers attended and a short time later three men - aged 30, 24 and 19 - were arrested in connection with the robbery.

They have since appeared in court charged in connection with the offence.

However, a police investigation is still ongoing and officers are now appealing for any witnesses to get in touch.

A number of people were in the area at the time and police want to speak to anyone who may have seen the assault.

If you saw what happened, or have information that may help the police, than call 101 quoting log 103 20/05/17 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
