Swindon man kicked in head during attempted robbery

A man was kicked in the head during an attempted robbery in Swindon.

A Wiltshire Police spokeswoman said the victim was walking home following a night out between 0415 BST and 0500 BST on Sunday when the attack happened.

She said he was set upon by two males, forced to the ground and kicked in the head near St Marks Park.

They tried to take his wallet and mobile phone, without success. They then left in the direction of town centre with about six others.

The force spokeswoman appealed for witnesses.
