Police are investigating after two food delivery drivers were robbed in Andover recently.

At around 3:00am on Thursday 12 July a 29 year-old man was approached by three men, who had their faces covered and one of whom was holding a knife, at Genoa Court on Roman Way in Andover.

The men stole cash and a phone, but no-one was hurt.

On Monday 23 July at around 1:15am on Launcelot Close a 57 year-old man was approached by four men who had their faces covered, one of whom was carrying a baseball bat.
