Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was assaulted and robbed in Kettering town centre

The attack happened in Dryland Street, some time between 4am and 4.30am last Saturday (October 22), after the victim had left the Abacus bar in Horsemarket.

He began a friendly conversation with two men, but shortly afterwards one of the men punched him in the side of the face before both offenders began kicking him on the ground while demanding money from him.

The victim’s mobile phone, which had cash in the flip case, fell out of his pocket during the assault and the two offenders took it before making off.
