Man's cheek slashed in Southampton street robbery

A man has been cut across his face during a violent street robbery in Southampton.

The 23-year-old was also robbed of the money in his pockets as he was attacked in Oakley Road, Millbrook, by the National Health Service headquarters.

Having been pushed to the ground by two white men, a black man appeared and repeatedly cut him across his cheek.

Police are seeking witnesses to the robbery sometime between 17:30 and 18:00 BST on Saturday.

The victim fought back and the three men eventually ran off in different directions.

All three men wore white and black tracksuits and detectives are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time or saw the men run away.
