A MAN had his neck cut with a knife during a "vicious and unprovoked attack" outside a Guildford pub, police have said.
The attack happened outside the Wooden Bridge pub.
The 22-year-old man was robbed of his mobile phone and wallet during the attack outside the Wooden Bridge pub in Woodbridge Hill.
He was with a group of men getting out of a car in the pub's car park when two men approached them between 8.40pm and 8.50pm on August 31.
The victim, who had been driving the vehicle, was with three passengers when he was grabbed around the throat by one suspect whilst the second offender went through his pockets and stole a mobile phone and a wallet.
The second offender then turned to another in the group, an 18-year-old man and grabbed him, demanding he handed over his wallet. The teenager managed to break free and ran off in the opposite direction.
The suspects made off in a get away vehicle which was parked in the same car park. A third man was driving the car which was then driven at speed along Woodbridge Hill in the direction of Guildford.
The suspects are described as two black men, aged between 18 and 20-years-old.
The first suspect is described as 6ft 2" tall with shaved hair and was wearing a black jacket and dark jeans.
The second suspect is described as 6ft tall and was wearing grey hooded top and dark rousers.
Detective constable Dan Chant investigating said: "This was a vicious, unprovoked attack against a couple of young men who were out socialising with a group of friends."
