FOUR robbers punched and kicked a Southampton man as they stole his wallet during an attack in a Southampton street.

The 21-year-old was stopped in an alleyway between garages that leads to Octavia Road in Mansbridge.

The men demanded valuables from him, before punching him in the face and kicking him repeatedly while he was on the ground.

They stole his wallet, which contained several cards and around £140, and then ran off towards Itchenside View.

The victim was left him with cuts, grazes and bruising to his face and body.

Police are now appealing for any witnesses who saw the incident or anything suspicious in the area around the time of the robbery, which happened at around 3.35am on Saturday.

The robbers are all described as black and in their 20s.

Anyone with information should call Detective Constable Steve Lanham at Bitterne CID on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
