The 24-year-old victim was in an alleyway between Admirals Road and Chaffinch Close when three men approached him.

The second offender is described as white, believed to be in his mid teens, around 5′ 2" tall, of stocky build, with dark crew cut hair and dark bushy eyebrows.
He had large hands and was wearing a dark tracksuit.
