ROBBERS knocked a man unconscious and stole his sunglasses while he walked along Thamesdown Drive.

Three men approached a man in his 20s as he walked from the Orbital Shopping Centre in the direction of Torun Way and reached the junction of Thursday Street.

Around 1.30am on September 22, one of the trio knocked the victim out and took his sunglasses while he was on the ground.

The victim later managed to flag down a member of the public who called police.

The victim was taken to the Great Western Hospital as a precaution.

Officers investigating a robbery in Swindon are appealing for the public’s help in identifying three men as part of their enquiries.

A Wiltshire Police spokesman said: "We’d like to hear from anyone who may be able to identify the three people pictured, or anyone who may have witnessed the incident.

"Call 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
