A MAN was threatened with a knife and left bruised during a robbery in Newbury.

The 19-year-old was chased by three men at Enborne Road at the junction of Buckingham Road.

He was punched several times in the face and then threatened with a vegetable knife.

After the beating, which resulted in bruising around his eyes, the man was robbed of his bank card, driving licence, iPhone 5c and a small amount of cash.

The robbery occurred at 9.15pm on Friday, May 20. 

The assailants are described as three 17 to 18 year-old black males all wearing matching black body warmers, black tracksuit bottoms and Nike trainers.

They had hoods up over their heads and one of them had a tidy thin beard.

PC Claire Drewitt said: "If you have any information about this incident please call the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101.

"If you do not want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers  anonymously on 0800 555 111. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court."

      Wow, racism is still rife in West Berkshire then! Someone (ie ME) thinks you also have the Daily Mail as an internet favourite.. Because they were black they are immediately foreign? Wow.
