Police are looking for witnesses after a man was 'sandwiched' between the two robbers who stole his phone.
The victim was walking along Station Road in Gloucester at 6.15pm on Friday when a man jumped in front of him and stole his phone out of his hand.
Startled, he dropped the phone and then tried to pick it up. At that point, the thief dug his nails into the victim's hand to try to force him to give up the phone.
Then, another man came up and stood on the other side of him, 'sandwiching' the victim between the two robbers. They grabbed his phone and left.
One of the men was black and the other was white - both are in their twenties. The black man was 5' 10" tall, of medium build and was wearing a black coat with a hood or a hat. He had a scar or mark on his neck. The white man, also around 5' 10" tall and medium build, had short dark hair and was clean shaven. He had a local accent and was wearing a white knitted jumper. He looked scruffy and gaunt.
