The first incident happened in a park area next to Charlotte Mews, in Old Town, at some time before 3.30am. A man in his 40s, reported that he was hit on the head and his wallet was stolen.
The second happened at 5.05am in Dorcan Way, east Swindon, when the victim, a man in his 20s, was approached and threatened by a group of youths. They chased him to the mini roundabout junction with Kingfisher Drive and assaulted him, before stealing his phone and wallet.
The third incident happened at around 5.45am in Queen's Drive, east Swindon, when a man in his 20s was assaulted by a group of youths. They tried to steal his phone but ended up fleeing the scene empty-handed.
"Luckily none of the victims were seriously injured, but these were nasty assaults and in all three incidents it has been reported that the group of youths were using some kind of hard object in a sock as a weapon.
We do not yet have clear descriptions of those involved, but we would like to hear from anyone who was in any of these three areas at the times of the robberies and may have seen a group of people acting suspiciously.
We are currently carrying out a number of enquiries, including looking through CCTV from each of the scenes."
