GWENT Police want to speak to a man in connection with a robbery in Newport in the early hours of New Year's day.
Two men, having met in the city centre, walked along High Street, Bridge Street and Station Street. Once they got to the Travelodge car park, between 4.10am and 4.35am, the 44-year-old victim was assaulted and robbed. His black leather wallet was stolen.
