A MAN was attacked and robbed of his phone in Ipsley Street, Redditch, on Monday, February 11 at about 5.20pm.
The 22-year-old victim was walking along Ipsley Street near the youth club when he was approached by two young men. They attacked him, dragged him to the floor and stole his Insignia mobile phone.
