Two men who had been amongst the first to buy the new Xbox One games console in Gloucester were robbed of their purchases just minutes later.

The pair, aged 25 and 27 and from Gloucester, were returning to their car in St Michael’s Square car park in Gloucester at around 12:15am after buying the items.

They were loading the consoles into their car when they were assaulted, the 25-year-old suffered injuries to his face and the 27-year-old was knocked unconscious.

Enquiries are on going to find those responsible and officers are eager to hear from anyone else that was in the area and may have witnessed the robbery.
