A pensioner has died after being mugged near his home in the Black Country.
Sobat Ali, 67, is thought to have been involved in an altercation shortly after buying jewellery in Walsall on Tuesday evening.
West Midlands Police said jewellery was taken from him. The scene has been cordoned off for forensic inquiries and a post-mortem examination will be held.
Officers have appealed for anyone who saw three black men in the Hart Street area at the time to contact them.
Mr Ali's grandson, Mac Khan, said he thought Mr Ali, a father of seven and grandfather of 16, was attacked shortly after buying the jewellery at a shop close to his home.
Bashid Khan, a son of Mr Ali, said his father was also known by the nickname Sultan and that he had been a popular member of the community.
He said: "He was a kind man. He was decent and well respected in the community. He used to go to the mosque and was well known by everyone.
"I am shocked by what has happened to him."
