Victim stripped naked by robbers in Hampshire

A robbery victim was stripped naked after he told his attackers he did not have anything worth taking.

The victim, 19, was also punched and kicked in the face by the two men on Vigo Road, Andover, Hampshire, on Monday. He received minor injuries.

The robbers fled with the victim's clothes in the direction of Granada Place.

Police are now appealing for information into the "unusual incident".

Both men are described as white, aged in their early 20s with local accents.

One man is said to be of stocky build, about 5ft 11in (1.80m) tall with a tattoo of a name on the left side of his neck.

He was wearing a dark coloured hooded top and grey, slim fit tracksuit bottoms.

The second man is described as 5ft 8in (1.72m) tall, with a skinny build and was wearing a black zip up hooded top which was undone with the hood up.

He was also wearing a dark coloured, possibly navy blue, jumper with white horizontal stripes and black denim jeans.
