A man needed hospital treatment after he was robbed in Epsom town centre at the weekend.
Surrey Police are appealing for witnesses after a man in his 20s was assaulted by a group of four or five men in an alleyway close to the TK Maxx store at around 8.40pm on Saturday, May 12.
The men took a quantity of cash and an iPhone from the victim.
Ambulance crews attended the scene and the man was taken to Epsom Hospital for treatment to facial injuries.
