A TRIO of masked robbers chased a man down Victoria Road as they attempted to steal his rucksack.

Two men, aged 17 and 22, have been arrested on suspicion of attempted robbery. Officers hope to track down the third suspect.

The victim, a man in his 30s, was approached outside Machine Mart by the three men between 1am and 1.20am on November 5.

A Wiltshire Police spokeswoman said: "The men, who all had their hoods up and scarves over their faces, were aggressive towards the man and demanded he hand over personal possessions.

"The victim ran off down the hill but the men chased him and attempted to steal his backpack. They were unsuccessful, and ran off back up Victoria Road and turned left onto Dumbarton Terrace."

Anyone with information or dash cam footage from the time of the theft bid is asked to contact Wiltshire Police on 101.
