A YOUNG man with a broken leg was attacked by thieves who stole his mobile phone and cash in Kidderminster.
The 22-year-old, who had one leg in a plaster cast, was walking through the underpass at the top of Blackwell Street, when two men demanded money and his phone, at about 4pm on Tuesday.
They kicked and punched him until he fell but when he got to his feet the men searched him before taking £60 from his coat pocket along with his white Blackberry Curve mobile phone, worth £160.
The men then walked towards the Horsefair after the attack. The victim did not sustain any injuries, however.
It is believed people were walking past as the young man was being attacked and police are urging witnesses to come forward by calling 101,quoting incident 369-s-170913.
Two men have been arrested on suspicion of robbery and have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
