A man was mugged by a gang while he and a friend were walking up Lindsey Street, Kettering.

Sometime between 4am and 5am on Sunday, August 19, two men were walking along Wellington Street and then up Lindsey Street when they saw a group of men running towards them.

At the junction of Crown Street, both victims were assaulted by the group and one of them had his phone, wallet and a watch, similar to the one pictured, stolen.
