A MAN returning home from prayers at a mosque was robbed of his laptop and wallet in a Southampton park.

The 32-year-old victim was attacked by two men as he walked through Watts Park from Above Bar Street.

He was assaulted and had a £1,000 Macbook computer stolen from his bag.

His wallet containing cash and cards was also stolen.

The robbery happened in bad weather between 11.15pm and 11.45pm last Monday.

Police have released an e-fit of one of the suspects who was described as white, 5ft 9ins and aged 20 to 30.

He was slim with a gaunt face and sunken eyes and had light short brown hair. He was wearing a black hooded top and dark jeans.

Both suspects had what the victim believed to be Eastern European accents.

PC Dave Houghton said: “This offence is an unprovoked attack on a man returning home from spending the evening in his local mosque praying.

“I would very much like to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area about this time as they could be vital witnesses to this robbery.”

He added: “Members of the public are always advised to stick to well lit areas where there are lots of other people and not walk through dark or lonely areas.”
