THREE people have been arrested after a street robbery.

It happened in an alleyway between the Whyte Street roundabout and Northern Road bridge in Cosham, Portsmouth, on Monday between 12.30pm and 1.30pm.

A 22-year-old man carrying an Xbox games console in a Tesco carrier bag was approached and attacked by two men, who ran off towards the Medina Estate.

They stole the Xbox 360 Elite with controllers and three games. The victim suffered head and face injuries.

Three men, aged 19, 21 and 22, from Portsmouth, were arrested on suspicion of robbery, questioned and bailed until December 30.

Det Con Pete Bambury said: ‘The victim has told police that a lady helped him after the robbery. I am keen to trace her as well as anyone else who may have witnessed what happened.’
