POLICE are hunting two robbers who beat up their victim and forced him to withdraw money from a cashpoint machine.

The culprits chased their victim into Rosebery Avenue, Bridgwater, where they punched him repeatedly.

When the victim's phone fell out of his pocket onto the ground, it was picked up by one of the attackers, who refused to return it.

The two male suspects then chased the victim up to the zebra crossing in the street, where they kicked him to the ground and continued to pick and punch him.

They then followed him to Sainsbury's cashpoint and forced him to withdraw cash in exchange for his phone.

Police have issued CCTV images of two men they would like to speak to in connection with the incident at around 4.15am on Saturday, August 3.

One of the men is described as white, of stocky build, in his early 30s, with a shaven head and he was wearing a white T-shirt, light coloured shorts and white trainers.

The other man is described as white, skinny, in his late 20s, with short blond hair and was wearing a check long sleeved shirt, dark shorts and black trainers.
