A man has been robbed at knifepoint in Dagenham yesterday afternoon.

A witness who saw the incident unfold in Walnut Tree Road and wanted to remain anonymous described how the man was knocked off his bike and saw him backing up after being approached by a male in Walnut Treet Road just after 3pm.

The witness said: “I asked him if he was ok, to which he replied no ‘I’m not alright’. He had a knife pulled on him and they took an adapter.”
