The man and his friend were in Woodbridge Road just before 2am and were trying to hail a taxi when a 62 plate white series BMW pulled up alongside them.

Four men and a woman were inside the car and 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.

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.”

If you can help, please contact DC Greaves at Surrey Police on 101, quoting crime reference GD/13/1515, or if you prefer not to leave your name, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
