In the first incident that happened at about 10pm on the A32 north of the Brockhurst roundabout, a 21-year-old man was walking along the road when he was approached by two men.

Both suspects then assaulted the victim, punching him in the head at least three times and demanding he give them his valuables. He did so, handing over a Silver LG mobile phone, a black iPod Touch in a black rubber casing, and a black/beige

In the second incident in Brewers Lane near the A32 at approximately midnight, two hours after the first robbery, a 17-year-old boy was walking along the road when he was approached by three men. They led him into a car park with them and
demanded he give them his valuables. He handed over an iPhone, and his wallet containing £200 in cash and several cards. The suspects then left. The victim was not harmed.

Detective Constable David Sheppard said:

 "These are two unprovoked robberies, the first of which happening on a busy road. Given the close proximity of location and time, along

with similarities in the descriptions, we believe these two robberies may have been committed by the same individuals.

"We would ask that anyone who witnessed either robbery, or has more information about the people responsible, to get in touch with police as soon as possible."

Anyone with information should contact Gosport police station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
