A man was attacked with a golf club and had his mobile phone stolen outside a property in Whittlesey.

The 28-year-old victim was smoking a cigarette in the front garden of a home in Chestnut Crescent at about 3am on Sunday (January 26) when three men approached.

One asked him for a light while another asked for the time.

As he got his iPhone out of his pocket one of the men struck him to the head with the golf club, knocking him to the ground. He was kicked and stamped on before the men made off, leaving him unconscious.

The main attacker was described as being white, in his late 20s, 5’10”, stocky and muscular, with short blond spiky hair and wearing blue jeans, white trainers and a white T-shirt with a woman’s face on the front.

The others were only described as white and in their 20s.

DC Colin Johnson, who is investigating, said: “This was a nasty robbery in which all three attackers kicked and stamped on the victim while he was on the ground, leaving him briefly unconscious but luckily not seriously injured.

“I would appeal for anyone who knows who these men might be or has any information at all about the attack to contact us.”

Anyone with information should contact DC Johnson on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
