Two men attacked in Thamesmead 'within 200 yards of each other'
DETECTIVES are appealing for witnesses after two men were attacked within yards of each other in Thamesmead in the early hours of Friday morning.
In the first attack at 5:50am, a man in his 30s was attacked by three men between Summerton Way and Crossway.
Although the suspects made off empty-handed, they assaulted the man and tried to steal his personal property, leaving him with injuries to his hand and face.
Ten-minutes later, a man in his 50s was punched in the face and had his phone stolen as he was waiting at the Woolwich-bound bus stop in Manordene Road.
The suspects then made off in the direction of Summerton Way.
Officers say they are appealing for witnesses who saw a group of three or four white men in the Crossway area to get in touch.
They are described as being aged between 20 and 25 and one was wearing a black jacket with white stripes on the sleeves.
Another was wearing a red jumper and jacket.
