A drinker was attacked and had £200 and his mobile phone stolen after three men followed him into the toilets of a town centre pub.

Northamptonshire Police have appealed for witnesses following the assault, which happened at around 9.15pm on Tuesday at The Auctioneers pub, in Northampton’s Market Square.

A 21-year-old man went to the toilet, where the first attacker asked him why he had been looking at him.

When he said he hadn’t, the man punched him, knocking him to the floor, where he was hit again and kicked. Police say he may have been attacked by two additional men while lying on the floor.

The victim had his mobile phone, £200 in cash and his keys stolen.

The attackers were seen leaving the pub and walking down The Drapery towards All Saints Church.

Police have said the first man was mixed race, in his mid 20s, around 5ft 10in, of medium build and with a tanned complexion. He had dark hair, stubble and was wearing a dark top.

The second man was white, clean shaven, stocky build with very short dark hair and was wearing a light blue polo shirt and dark blue jeans.

The third was a slim black man, 5ft 10in, with short black hair, wearing a dark jacket and dark jeans.

Witnesses to this incident, or anyone with information, can call Northamptonshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
