Three men were robbed in Cambridge in the space of 40 minutes in the early hours of 18th November last year.

The first happened outside Barclays Bank, in Market Hill, at 2am.

The 21-year-old victim was grabbed from behind, punched and had his wallet and jewellery stolen by a group of men.

About 10 minutes later, a man was approached as he pushed his bicycle along the bridge at Garret Hostel Lane.

One of the group stole his bike after confronting him.

The third incident happened near the ice rink, in Parker's Piece, at 2.40am.

The victim was pushed to the ground, kicked and had his wallet stolen.

The victim's friend was also assaulted.

Detectives are linking the robberies and have now released CCTV images of four men they want to speak to.

Detective Constable Peter Rivers, investigating, said: "These street robberies were all carried out in a very short space of time using threats and violence.

We would like to speak to the men pictured on CCTV as we believe they may have vital information to assist the investigation.

I would appeal to anyone who recognises the men in the images below to contact police."

Anyone with any information is asked to call DC Rivers on 0345 456 456 4 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
