Swindon Police are appealing for witnesses following a robbery in the town centre.

It happened in the early hours of Sunday, 10 September.

A force spokesperson said: "At around 3am, the victim, a 19-year-old man, left the Power Lounge nightclub in the town centre.

"He has then been approached by a group of males, who are thought to have mistaken him for someone else called Jack.

"We unfortunately don’t have an exact location of where this incident took place."

The spokesperson added: "We are appealing for anyone who witnessed anything that may help us to identify where it took place or who the suspects are to please get in touch with us.
