Man assaulted during robbery in Warwickshire

A 26-year-old man was taken to hospital after being assaulted during a robbery in Warwickshire.

The man had a fractured left eye socket and sprained right wrist following the incident on Pipers Lane in the Nuneaton area at about 1715 BST on Thursday.

A car pulled up behind him and the man heard a voice, turned around and the next thing he recalled was waking up on the floor.

He realised a Toshiba Satellite laptop and Nokia mobile phone had been stolen.

The man, who was walking from Atherstone towards Nuneaton, also had a bloodied nose and superficial cuts to his face following the incident.
