A GANG of four men assaulted and stole the wallet of a man waiting for a taxi in Guildford.
Police have appealed to anyone who may have seen the attack in Woodbridge Road to come forward.
The man and his friend were in Woodbridge Road just before 2am on Sunday (February 24) and were trying to hail a taxi when a 62 plate white series BMW pulled up alongside them.
The four men inside the car started speaking to the victims before getting out of the car and giving chase. The suspects tripped up one of the victims before assaulting him and making off with his wallet and driving off in the direction of Ladymead.
The first suspect, who was driving the BMW, is described as white, in his 20s, with short brown hair and was wearing a dark shirt and trousers.
The second suspect is described as black, in his 20s, tall, skinny with short hair and was wearing a white t-shirt.
The third and fourth suspects are described as white, in their 20s, with short hair. Police believe there was also a woman in the car but she did not get out of the vehicle.
Detective Constable Andy Greaves said: "The two men had been out in Guildford town and were on their way home and trying to find a taxi when they were set upon by these four men in the BMW. One of them was punched and kicked and after the suspects fled, found his wallet was missing. We are making a number of enquiries and are appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time who witnessed this incident to come forward as soon as possible."
