Two robbers are wanted by police for punching a man to the ground for refusing to surrender his wallet and mobile phone.
The 33-year-old man was leaving the Docklands Light Railway station on Stratford High Street with his wife at around 12.15am on January 24.
The couple from Stratford were approached by two men who demanded he hand over the items.
When the man refused, one of the robbers grabbed him, searched his pockets - taking a wallet and a mobile phone - and punched him so he hit the ground while the other suspect acted as a look-out.
The suspect then told the man’s wife to hand over her mobile phone but she said she didn’t have one. She was also searched before the two men ran off.
