A MAN suffered an eye injury after he was robbed in Andover.

At some time between 3.40am and 4.20am on Sunday, 3 February, the 21-year-old victim was walking along Wellesley Road towards the junction with Chestnut Avenue, in Andover.

As he was walking he was approached from behind by at least two men who hit him in the face and forced him to the ground. They then removed the victim’s wallet and cash from his trousers.

The offenders, one of which was described as wearing a dark hooded top with the hood up, then made off on foot.

The victim sustained an injury to his eye.

Detective Constable Paul Barry said: “I am appealing for anyone with any information about this incident to come forward and speak to us.

“If you saw or heard anything suspicious in the early hours of the morning on Sunday, February 3 in the Wellesley Road area, please get in touch and help us with our inquiries.”

Anyone with information should contact Det Con Barry at Andover CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
