TWO teenagers have been arrested after the robbery of a man was caught on CCTV.

The victim was walking alone in Commercial Road, Landport, Portsmouth, towards a group of six men when the incident happened.

One of the men approached the man and started patting him down.

Police believe something was stolen from him and are linking the robbery which happened between 9pm and 10.15pm on Monday, to other incidents thought to involve the same group that day.

The victim was wearing a long sleeved shirt with a T-shirt underneath and blue jeans.

Police have not yet been able to trace him and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

A 17-year-old and a 18-year-old man from Portsmouth have been arrested in connection with other similar incidents.

Police have not released the CCTV as arrests have been made.

Call Detective Constable Jim Garrett at Fratton police station on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
