TWO would-be robbers fled empty handed when they attacked a woman last month.

The 43-year-old victim was confronted by the suspects as she walked on Oxbridge Lane in Stockton at 9.30pm on Thursday, March 28.

As she was under the bridge near to the stair well, she was approached by two men who demanded cash from her and pushed her into the brick steps.

Cleveland Police said a member of the public who was close by intervened and the two men ran off in the direction of Aldi empty handed.

Anyone with any information regarding the incident is asked to contact DC Phil Lamb from Cleveland Police on 101, quoting event number 052459 or Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via
