A robber targeted a 74-year-old man on a Dundee street and stole his mobile phone and cash.

Tayside Police said the victim was walking home from the city centre when the attack happened on King Street between 1900 and 2000 BST on Monday.

He was pushed to the ground from behind. The attacker, thought to be in his 20s, then took a mobile phone and a small amount of money from his pockets.
