The 31-year-old victim was robbed while walking in an alleyway between Bournemouth Road and Templars Way, in Chandlers Ford.

His bag was found nearby, missing the cash.

The second is described as aged in his early 20s, of slim build, 5ft 5in tall and wearing a maroon coloured hoody with the hood up.

Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone who was passing the location around the time of the incident, which happened between 9am and 10am on Friday , who may have seen anyone acting suspiciously to come forward.

Anyone with information can call PC Jason Gore at Eastleigh Police station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

He may have withdrawn that from a bank and been followed by someone who saw him.
