An elderly man was robbed after being attacked with a plastic table leg.
Police say a 64-year-old man was hit on his leg as he waited for a bus in London Road, Swanley.
He was approached from behind by two men on Thursday, July 17 and they made off with a bag which contained an empty plastic box.
"After assaulting the victim the men snatched a bag out of his hand and ran across the road, towards Walnut Way.
"The bag contained just an empty plastic box and was later recovered in the same area."
The victim, who suffered severe bruising to his right thigh, said neither of the men said anything during the robbery and described the object used in the attack as a white plastic table leg, which measured around 1.5 feet long.
He has described both the offenders as white, aged between 20 and 30, having short hair and being of medium build and average height.
They were both wearing shorts and jackets.
